    Hi Frances,
    this is a nice period item. 100% original in my opinion. The embroidery looks absolutely ok to me.
    The colours show that it is from the Kinderschar organisation.
    There were several other pre HJ organisations within the German Youthmovement which also used the Wolfsangel, but never in this colour combination.
    This Kinderschar was located near the Westpark in the famous West-German town of Aachen.
    If you type Westpark and Aachen into Google and select the map, you can see this well known park clearly.
    Interesting item, thank you for sharing and thank you for the good photos.

    The monthly magazin Die Deutsche Kinderschar was started in January 1933,
    in August 1934 the title was changed to Wolfsangel.
    My last edition of this magazine is from February 1935.
    You will find some nice pictures and some good information if you type
    Kinderschar or Wolfsangel into the search function / query function.
    There you will also find a photo of two boys holding a Wimpel which looks pretty much like yours.
