Just wanted to get some opinions on this pin.  It doesn't look like any I've seen online or on this forum.  No markings that I can see and it has some "weight" to it.  Any insight would be appreciated.  Thanks!

I have always thought these were 1960s or later made. Not German made. I have run across these before pinned to DENMARK Co stamped card. The workmanship is much cruder than the ones made in Tolz.

 

 I have an album of 10th Group insignia that has several examples of Trojan Horse beret badges posted on my FB page; https://www.facebook...ecialoperations

In 1965 I was serving with 10th Group and the Trojan horse badge could still be bought from the old German in Bad Tolz that made them. They were much lighter weight, a full length very delicate pin and were all marked with a small "800"" in the upper corner of the badge. I would say this is one that is currently being made.
