This likely has some civilian labor relation (like due to no swastika) to the R.A.F. “The Rafwaffe” formed during the Second World War to evaluate captured enemy aircraft and demonstrate their characteristics to other Allied units. I’ve never seen or owned one before and cannot identify it indefinitely. This photo is of RAF 1426 commanding officer Lt. Lewendon in 1944. It is constructed out of a die struck brass base that has been gilded. The obverse features a soaring eagle surrounded by a round border. The reverse has a soldered on and knurled stickpin. The face measures approximately ½ an inch wide. It could also have some relation to the Luftwaffe post WWII Federal Republic of Germany; Official denazified “1957” issue for Veteran’s wear. A unique piece!
