My brother recently unearthed this from my dad's estate. The story is that my grandfather brought it back from Germany as a souvenir. He served during WWII in artillery and I believe was at the Battle of the Bulge. I've never seen an embroidered patch like this before, especially with the green. Does anybody know the significance of it?

Like always happens to me, right after posting this question, I found out what it is. It's a German Polizei sports patch usually put on shirts or tank tops. It was part of the redesign of police uniforms in 1936 to make them look more like the Nazi party insignia.

Yeah, it's a Police Sports Badge. Thank you all for your information. I know that my grandpa brought it back from WWII so it's legit. It looks like it was cut off of the shirt with a knife or just torn off. Either way, it's pretty cool, other than the link to what those bastards did. My brother told me that there are supposed to be other "souvenirs" in a box that we've yet to find. Can't wait to find it and see what grandpa brought back.
