It is not a membership pin. There was no member of NSKK  with a rank that would require a diamond studded membership pin.

If anything, something unofficial. Question is the vintage. Judging by the finish (unpolished marks on the verso) and rather chaotic layout of stones, my guess would be circa 2000's (that's date, not its worth). IMO, of course.

No, in my opinion it is not genuine, pre 1945 item.

Are you the same person who posted this item on War Relics Forum?  Someone did but when the questions were posed in regards to this item, the original poster decided to pack it in.

It is the same one. Also, why post it in the Weimar/Freikorps forum where it clearly does not belong? Is it because posting it in the TR forums will illicit the same strongly negative response and criticism the piece (and the poster) received on WRF? It's obvious looking at it, that it's cast and not of the quality one would expect from a German jeweler.
