    two things that you could try to get more help:
    1. Provide a few photos of the piece
    2. Post thing in the "What is it" section of the forum (with the pics)
    sounds like a cool piece

    This?

    Up for auction is this fine, Vintage, mystery pin.


    This badge features a top, unmarked name bar from which hangs a triangle bearing the letters OMA in black enamel.

    This pin weighs 2.2 grams and measures 1 5/32" (29mm) tall.
    Might be from the "Knights of Honor"

    The seal or emblem of the KOH was a shield, depicting a knight with his shield arm raised. On the main shield was a triangle with the letters O.M.A.

    It appears to be a Phi Mu Alpha music fraternity pin. I've never seen one like that, though. I'm a member of the frat. I have a membership pin in the same formation as your piece (triangle pointing up, O on top, M bottom left, and A bottom right). Mine has rubys and pearls though. I could send you a picture if you want. I'm very interested......

    The K.O.H. was exclusively MALE.

    There fore, the point of the triangle is pointed up, denoting "Masculine". If it were pointed down, it would denote feminine. This symbol dates back to years BC.

    These older sects were really into the symbolism of their objects.

    Bramblefind is good, real good!

    No pic and the wrong forum. Was going to move this to What Is It but guess I don't have to.
