Item #14-4-4. Carl from Florida asks, Can anybody identify this badge?" My buddy has had it for more than 30 years but no one can give him a positive identification--plenty of opinions, but not any concrete evidence as to who wore it."
Joe Borgia identified 14-4-4 as a variation of the SS skull. His source for the information is the SS cap he brought home from the war that has the same exact insignia on it. Mr. Borgia was a member of the 8th Armor Division. Karen Gasser, Director of the AAF Museum wrote, "Skull and bones insignia such as this were worn by a great many military, paramilitary and to some degree civilian organizations over history. The size and construction seem to indicate that this pin is for the tank troops of the late 1930s period, Spanish Condor Legion. Their skull and bones insignia came in a variety of crude materials and design configurations."
