Please help ID Vintage Enamel Badge Emblem

Hello, I do not own a Mercedes but I was handed this badge when I was 10 and told 'not to lose it' by a weird old man at a swap meet. I'm not making this up. I have to presume it has something to do with time travel.

I've had it now for nearly 30 years and STILL can't find what it goes to. Every few years I scour the Internet for answers and nothing, and I've posted on boards and contacted Mercedes owners groups... nothing.

The back is a thread post with what seems to be a layer of foam between the enamel face and metal backer. It's about 3" in diameter.

Any help to ID would be appreciated!

It almost looks like a MBZ truck badge. It is attached above the grill.
That would be my guess from the size of it.
