This is one (there were several), of the pre-1936 Zeppelin Officers Cap Badges, which of course was worn during the Nazi (NSDAP) period but before the badge was changed to the Eagle and swastica badge. It is taken from an original and has appropriate markings on the rear and is made in the correct metals and enamel. 'LZ' stands for Luftschiff Zeppelin, or "Airship Zeppelin". This badge has been seen on crew pictures from the early 1930's to approx 1935. www.warhats.com
