Default Italian Carabinieri Badge, WW2?

Hi all. I have come into possession of this badge. It appears to be related to the Carabinieri from the Fascist period, however I don't know anything else about it. Is anyone able to provide any further information?

Thanks in advance.

James

That is the coat of arms of the Carabinieri, as of 1935.

The two "nails" at the back suggest that is was fixed on a wooden plate and was not a piece of uniform.

It wouldn't do the enamel much good if you hammered it into a bit of wood, the pins could be bent over to fit it onto a piece of leather?

What size are the "pins" ?

They look similar to clutch pins which were definitely used on some WW2 American badges and could possibly have been on Italian badges in the 1940's/early 1950's.
