    Welcome to the forum Slick. You are in the right "direction" by coming here. Sure someone can help but as Aldo noted, we need photos

    Here is a handy tutorial for uploading photos. Quality photos are key for a good evaluation as they are highly faked.

    Does the pin look like either of these?

    or this one

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    I will upload some pics when i get home, but its a single lightning bolt about an inch and a half tall with two pins coming out the back that have screw type backings with teeth to affix it on a uniform. Its 10k gold, or at least stamped with a 10k stamp on the back... It certainly looks antique enough to be authentic, but i understand that this authentic look can be faked... Again, ill upload pics once i get back home..

    The SS did not produce insignia in gold. It also did not produce single rune insignia. The HJ however did, not in real gold though. It is a runic depiction and not a lightning bolt. The idea that the rune is a lightning bolt seems to hold some neo-nazi interpretation if you ask me. Good luck friend. Lets see the photos.

    Interesting. Definitely appears to be a DJ (Deutsche Jungvolk) "style" Sig Rune. Appears to be well made with some age. But as to what it really is, I do not know. Never seen something like this.

    Hopefully others will be around. And maybe a Mod can move this to the correct forum for better attention

    A quick and simple history of the DJ (not that I always agree with Wiki)
