Hi R1:

Is the badge smaller than an Iron Cross?

reservist1,

I love those ribbon-backed pins. I have had more than a few over the years and wish now that I had kept all of them. All I have left are two regimental pieces. I think yours, besides being a very pleasing design, is unusual in that most centennial commemorative tokens were medals.
