Hello to all,

 

I need some help identifying this badge.  I believe it is Thai.  It measures 42mm tall and 33mm wide.  It has very nice detail.  Am I correct about Thailand?  Unit insignia?  What period?  Thanks for your help.

The pin is Thai made but is probably for a Laotian unit with the three elephants on the top.

Thanks for the response.  I thought the same thing, however, Laos uses the three elephant heads on a large staggered base with a single staggered crown.  The three elephant heads I have seen on Thai pieces show the three elephant heads on a flat base with three individual crowns.  I think the answer will rest with the twisted letters in the center of this badge.  Or maybe I'm just over thinking this.
