Anyone?

What are the three letters? I cannot figure out the first one. The other two seem to be D and B.

Anything on the back

can't tell what they are.... Rear is unmarked, flat, silvered. It is made very well, silvered as mentioned, twist on pin...
The Czech Nazi party stick pin is almost exactly the same so it has to be something Czech...

Pretty sure it's VdB and that I've seen it before. --- But where?
Don Scowen would probably know.

you know a couple years ago I tried to find out what org. this was with no luck..
Now figuring that so much more info comes out every year I would finally find out what this pin is!!

Ok,,,,, ATTENTION GDC MEMBERS!

Since I have 3 of these pins I am offering a reward of one of these stic pins to the person that can identify the organization that is on this pin.
- That's right as a reward I will send free of charge to anyone in the USA, [out of country,,you pay shipping and I'll send it out to you]

The identification must be 100%, a period photo of the emblem,,period documents with the emblem on them, or a reference book describing the emblem.

* Remember, I am not asking to have the pin authenticated, just to identify the organization!

That was my first guess, just not positive yet Volksdeutches Bewegung. And I'm sure I seen this in an ad, but have to find it to be sure.
