    50 Year Jubille of a Fife Club in the town of Markneukirchen.

    Few would have been made, but value would be low. Unless you are interested in Music Clubs.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sorry, Ade, but actually these chaps were smokers, not musicians: It's a pipe club.

    (Allow me an additional observation: The design of the plaque is of a rather generic, non-specific nature. It would seem likely to me that this was a commercially available "all purpose" item sold with a blank shield that could be customized by engraving it as desired.)

    It says:


    "As a
    memory
    of the 50th anniversary
    dedicated by the
    Pipe Club
    'Einigkeit"
    [= 'Unity']
    Markneukirchen
    9 March 1930
    "


    The anniversary most likely refers to either the 50th anniversary of the club's founding or some veteran smokers' 50-year-membership.

    Only in Germany would one find a group of lads so fond of their pipes that they would actually form Clubs to enjoy them in each others company! This plaque must be either unique or nearly so. I can't imagine many being still in existence.

    There's an old adage that whenever three Germans get together, they immediately find a reason to form a club.

    While this is of course a humorous exaggeration it is indeed a typically German thing to have clubs, associations and special interest groups for anything and everything. A village near my hometown even has a club devoted to a specific brand of Bavarian mustard. (I kid you not.)

    By the way, a surprising number of such pipe clubs exist even today: Just do a Google search for "Pfeifenclub" and check out the number of hits.
