I recently got a bunch of stuff from a friend who is moving across the country. In a pocket of one of the shoulder bags he gave me was a pouch with an assortment of foreign coins. Mixed in with them was this coin/ pendant
I have no idea what it is and my google-fu not only failed, but landed me in some pretty crazy nazi/ white supremacist web sites. I know my friend isn't Jewish and also 99.9% sure he's not down with the aryan nation. He did travel to Germany a year or so ago, so I'm guessing that's where he picked it up. I'd ask him, but he's out of touch until he gets settled in his new place and that's at least a week away. Plus, I don't really want to start off the conversation with "Hows the new apartment? By the way, are you a Nazi?"
So, any ideas about what this thing is???? Ever seen a Star of Daivd and
a Swastika on the same symbol before?
