Israeli beret badge bearing the insignia of the IDF, 1950's. The emblem of the Israel Defence Forces became the insignia of the General Staff in the years after the War of Independence (1948-49), as other branches of the armed forces adopted their own unique banch insignia. This badge would have been worn by a soldier attached to the General Staff and fasted to a beret using a metal pin held by the two prongs on the reverse. Not maker-marked. Unfortunately the badge is bent in a few places and the Star of David frame and base of the sword have snapped.
