Description
Palestine/Israel(?): "Bnei Metzada" ('Sons of Massada) level badge of the Shomer HaTzair ('Young Guard') Zionist-Socialist youth movement, circa. 1930s-40s; not maker-marked; size: 19.5 x 23mm; weight:1.85g. The badge depicts 3 date trees and a tent, with the name "Bnei Metzada" in Hebrew below. This was issued at the completion of a young Guard members second stage (of seven) in the ranks of the movement. Nicely manufactured - here with 2 prong reverse (and not the more common safety-pin back), suggesting an early period of use; not maker-marked, hence probably from Palestine/Israel.
