Interestingly enough your badge has a clue as to its age, my understanding is that prior to 1926 the city was spelled Coblenz (as it is on your badge) and post 1926 it was spelled Koblenz.

The monument in pictured on the badge is the Deutsches Eck and it is a monument to Emperor William I which was built in 1897.

So my guess is that you are looking at a badge made somewhere between 1897 and 1926 or a reproduction of one.
