Irgun/Etzel member's badge with two-pronged back, circa. 1940's; size: 18.5 x 20mm; weight: 1.5g.
Unusual version with two-ponged back (one broken; apparently missing the adjoining snaps to the pins), as most of the Irgun's pins were made with safety-pin backs. With the organization's motto "only thus" in the exergue. A larger version of the emblem made of white metal. The design is of the Irgun's emblem set again the crenalated battlements of the Old City of Jerusalem.
