Default Unknown Petty Officer Badge?

Hi,

I'm trying to identify an anchor pin I found. It looks like it's a fake, but I'm curious if anyone has seen one before. Thanks

Hello submariner620, welcome to the Forum. Your account is active and open for posts. The crown on your badge may be Swedish, Danish or maybe Belgian?

Crown looks Spanish or possibly Swedish/Danish? But the construction looks like it's a fashion item or possibly for dramatic productions?

Thanks for the feedback. I purchased it on a whim from an antique store because it intrigued me. Wasn't expensive, but the construction seems like a fashion item potentially. The backing is heavy duty for something real cheap. The closest badge I've seen so far is a petty officer, but it's not exactly the same. Maybe a sweetheart badge? It's about 50 mm long.
