    I didn't know what it was when I found it at the flea market. I bought it because it was silver and interesting. After some research, I sent an email to Paul Laidlaw's (BBC Antiques Roadshow, Bargain Hunt, Antiques Road Trip) auction house. He is one of the most well known militaria experts in the field. Imagine my surprise when I received an email the very next day! I have asked him about the guide price and am getting details on sending it to him to auction off for me. This badge is apparently quite rare. Yippee!!!

    Thanks for looking,
