Like you requested I will post my opinion on this piece. Looking at the acid test, it’s not real gold. The acid has eaten at the sample and you can see gold particles floating in a swirl pattern, this result means it’s gold plated. It’s definitely vintage, they made these type of pins in the 60’s and revived them again in the 80’s. Since it’s unmarked I can’t pin its origin down with 100% certainty, but my educated guess is that it hails from either Germany or it’s Czech.
I am a retired Jeweler and Gemologist and my specialty was Antique Jewelry. Hope that helps.

Thank You ,What would be a fair price?

Well on most sites that sell vintage jewelry the prices range from $20 to $30, but those are not missing any stones. Although it is an easy fix.
