Anyone recognize this piece?

Recommended Posts

This looks like a Freikorp collar tab piece except most I have seen are gold and this is silver. The back has that rainbow toning and it is not magnetic. I think it is silver. It is in a grouping from Württemberg and there are no Freikorps items present. Could this just be something you could sew to your shooting cap? I checked my sources and did not find a match.

Thank you sir! It has the oak leaf and acorn motif of so many Freikorps pieces but then again it’s a German thing.

True. But, many Weimar ear German State Police units used oakleaves as collar insignia. Bavarian police used 2 different types. I would also suggest that it could be for forestry personnel.

I think it would be helpful to see the back.

From the two holes I assume it is supposed to be sewed on something.


It could easily be some  sort of hunting badge as well but since oak leaves are so widely used it will be hard to narrow it down unless someone recognizes it.

I've been searching for something similar and have yet to come up with something.
