      There is no problem with the Swaz facing the other direction, especially on an early piece. Many early groups used it facing the other way to the one we expect (remember this pin has nothing to do with the NSDAP, it's just another of the many right wing youth groups as far as I'm aware). You can even see pictures of freikorp troops with it painted that way on their helmets.

      I suspect that the pin has been replaced on this piece, more often the pin has a hook type end to the pin as seen on the other one that the site had. For some reason the enamel work is always sloppy on these, I haven't seen many but those that I have seen have overspill of colours etc. I'm waiting for it to arrive & will be able to say more once I have it in hand

      Cheers

      I believe that it's the motto of the group, "Im deutschen Namen Heil!" (I.d.N.H.). It was written out in full on the earlier badges.

      Thats not a problem at all. The Thule used them as well, both actually, as well as a few others, as well as it being used as a Good Luck symbol, which is still is/means in some countries today.

      I've no idea whether that was the actual name of the group or not. The pins have been attributed to them by Hüsken, but we both know that he can be un-reliable in such cases.

      They may have just been nationalistic slogan pins sold on street corners by some small now forgotten group?
