    Hello everyone,
    This is my first thread, but I hope it won't be the last!

    I've joined this forum after seeing an impressive collection of stickpins by Aldo, an outstanding effort! Accept my kind regards!

    Long story short, few weeks ago, while metal-detecting along the Elbe river, I've found a tiny item that looks like a pin (I might be wrong here).
    The area is famous for being a designated crossing\surrender to allied forces point for the 9th Army and other units escaping the Red Army, so I have an assumption that this item has something to do with the Wehrmacht. Yet, after countless hours of searches and contacting all of the experts I know, I couldn't identify it. It might be DDR too, I suppose?

    I am hoping that there's someone here who could assist.

    It is a rectangular piece, 22x11mm, with two oak leaves under it (above it?) and a sword/spear-like shape. The area around the shape was most probably red, transparent plastic. You can still see some remains of it.
    The back side has no stamps, it seems, yet some signs of welding. Because of that and its small size I could only assume that it's a stickpin.

    I would greatly appreciate any help with identification of this item.

    Kind Regards,

    Intriguing... the central object (vaguely) resembles a torpedo.

    Nice find Jeg0r. No idea either, the "blade" looks like a propeller blade to me. It isn't familiar to me. Maybe WHW or NSFK. I'm intrigued too. Let's see what the forum thinks.
