Picked this up in a large group of assorted pins and badges.

Was able to determine it was Kingdom or Jugoslavia but that was it.

it measures about 1 1/4" by 1 3/8"

It is non magnetic.

Does anyone know the time period it was used and where it would have been worn and by whom?

Thank you very much in advance.

Please try to take a photo that is in focus on a single color background.

I'm also curious as to why you believe it it be from the Kingdom of Yugoslavia? Even Though I would need a clearer image to see better the fact that the badge has the Pillars of Hercules points more towards Spain or South/Central America

Thank you for your reply.

It has K  J on the front in the shield.

The only thing I could think of was Kingdom Jugoslavia

Unless someone recognizes the badge offhand it would be good to have a sharp image of the crest or describe it.

It looks like on the bottom there is a K and J with a rose in between (is it a rose?) Top is there an A in the center or an Eye of Providence? what is on the top left and right and in the center of the crest?

Also the pillars... any writing on them?

At the top center of the crest is a 5 pointed stat with rays projecting out.

At the 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions there appears to be a small crown.

Along the bottom there is K, a stemmed rose, and a J.

On the left pillar are the letters "plus" and on the right pillar the letters "ultra"

I found a picture of basically the same crest on line unidentified also.

Except mine has the crown above the eagles heads.

OK, so the badge is Peruvian. Probably a crest of the city of Lima. 

I found the zippo lighter from the above image and it shows the crest of Peru with a peruvian lady on the opposite side.

    • 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  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
    • I don't really drink that much these days, but there is something about a hot cup of Char that can't be beaten when you are cold wet and miserable. Has to be with milk and although I prefer it sweet with a teaspoon of sugar, these day I usually go without. When the mood takes me I will also  drink Earl Grey (with milk of course). But if I am honest my favourite brew is coffee (espresso) can't stand instant coffee, though although I do like Camp coffee which is another British thing from days gon
