Hello Gents  Have any of you ever seen one of these and if so how would it be worn?  Attached to a pocket perhaps.  Smaller than a penny and light as a feather.  Thanks for your time.  Regards Robert

Crimped onto a pocket or perhaps through a lapel buttonhole.

If on a women's jacket? Not sure. If loose weave cloth no problem.

Joe Have you ever seen one of these before?  I wonder about who in particular would wear this.  Maybe its the bottom line generic souvenir or one who works for KdF?  No clue

Robert,

I'll have to hit the tinnie books. No date no ship or trip name. Generic NSG/KDF donation badge?

Robert,

Saw one similar on another forum. It was for Gau Franken. Had the same attachment setup.

Sorry for my late reply, been under the weather lately....

Very nice Robert, a new one for me as well.  It reminds me of the "flag day" type badges that we had when I was a lad.  People on the street corners shaking their collection cans would clip a simiar type of badge to your pocket or button hole if you gave them a couple of pennies for the cause that they were collectin for.

Nice find.

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
