I would guess it has a better chance of being German. The Germans had almost endless stickpins - used as lapel pins, compared to the Americans.

Hi Andy ,

First good to hear that your health is stabile; that is very good news .

The pin... yes , if there was a fasces around, it could be an Italian pin from the Mussolini era..

I think if it were German, it would resemble a traditional German fireman's axe.
