I would look for towns around that area that start with R or had High Schools that started with R (some may be renamed). School pins were popular in the 1930's. After Uncle Adolph came to power the symbol in the middle would have fallen out of favour. So that may be a pin from an older generation. Ask your cousin about yearbooks and towns that the kinfolk lived in.

It might be work a shot. https://www.reddit.com/r/whatisthisthing/

I meant couture as a synonym for fashionable. Is that incorrect?

Ok. Never really heard it before used as such. Always heard it in reference to actual fashion (clothing) related things only. Oh well, you live and learn

Hmm. Looking at it now, I guess it is. Never occurred to me before. Fascinating. So, that's a helmet on the head.

So the figure is wearing a helmet and holding a torch. Interesting combination. It might be probative.
