It is from WWI. This is called "Insemnul Vulturul Romaniei" (Romanian Eagle sign) and it was awarded to ground recon officers during WWI.
This is a very rare piece.

You are making a confusion . The " Romanian Eagle " was given to the senators and members of the Parliament. This is the "Insemnul cercetasilor din razboiul 1916-1919".

I discovered why did you made the confusion , because in the book of Mr. Bedivan is messed up. If you will have a look at the back of the book , you'll see he gave the same name for the right VR.

Hi ,
in fact this badge is called " insigna comandantilor cercetasi " and they are 3 types of it!!!!(not 2!!!)
1- The type with King Carol 2 cypher (chanell cypher! :D )
2- The type with King Michael's cypher ( the cross with m's )
and the unknown last type is.......
3- The type from the early RPR period without King's cypher, the eagle doesen't wear the crown and keeps no cross in the beak! You will find also the initials RPR(republica populara romana) on the badge.
This last badge is the rarest of all 3 types!!! Personal , I saw only the miniature of this badge.

[B]Do you think so ?? I doubt that. I think the pictures are shity , not because the authors didn't want to do better pictures , just because the book was published in 1992 , and at the time the publishing in Romania was rudimentary.

Dragos03's post on girlscouts awards reminded me of this thread. Could the upper three badges in the image above be the badges mentioned in that post?

QUOTE (dragos03 @ Mar 5 2006, 06:12 PM)
Numbered badges for all the members (bronze for regular members, silver for commanders and gold for the Great Commander).

Can anyone give more information about these badges? They appear to have VIRTUTEA CERCETĂŞEASCĂ (SCOUT VIRTUE) and the Romanian version of the scout motto (GATA ORICÂND) on the white ribbon around the centre.

And here is another badge/pin bearing the inscription CERCETĂŞIA ROMÂNIEI (Scout Movement of Romania). Do you have any information on this one?

That badge is definetly french....at the bottom of it you can see SUF that's "Scouts Unitaire de France"

P.S. I'm sorry if I make spelling errors, but my writing skill is much more inferior than my speaking skill in English and French.
