Pick this up the other day, it looks to be a German State Forestry Honor Horn. I can only find two others like it, one identical match and the other similar. I am guessing they were awarded or presented to someone in Forestry.

is it called a Flugelhorn, in Deutchland? could look it up... almost an hour of thorough searches can't find anything close to it!

Horns were the symbol of the hunt, and were often portrayed on emblems, medals, steins, trophies, & awards, throughout
Germany for hundreds of years, for marksmanship with weapons! I viewed over 1,500 photos and presentations in eBay, on militria sites, and in searches in DuckDuckGo.

It is very appealing in an artistic form, as most of the medals I viewed are metal stampings, though a few are painted.
