I just bought this piece at the fair in Brasov. Does anybody knows what it is?
I think it's ARR related, maybe a squadron badge?

I think this is an early comunist pin (the crown is missing!) from a youth or scout club.

Not all badges from that period had the crown. I've seen quite a few ARR badges that didn't have it.
For example:

There are more in Iliese's book of Airforce badges.

Anyway, this Soimii badge doesn't look and feel as an early communist one, I can't be sure but I'm fairly certain it's older than that.
