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.

Code:
Racine
Radisson
Randolph
Readstown
Redgranite
Reedsburg
Reedsville
Reeseville
Reserve
Rewey
Rhinelander
Richfield
Ridgeland
Ridgeway
Rio
Ripon
Roberts
Rochester
Rockdale
Rockland
Rome
Rosendale
Rosholt
Rothschild
Rudolph

I know that it may not be couture to recommend offsite, but the folks on Reddit at r/whatisthisthing are incredible sleuths at identifying anything from valuable relics to miscellaneous tchotchkes. It might be work a shot.

The high school does not have 'R' in it's name and the mascot/team does not have an 'R' in it either.

I'll ask my cousin to post on Reddit. Thanks for the hint.

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.

Statue of Liberty was my first idea when I looked at that part of the pin.

I just can't decipher it. What for you? It is apparently from the Thule-Gesellschaft.
