    I know the pin on the left is Swedish, because it says Stockholm on the reverse. But what is the other one? Looks like Swedish, but? It obviously is a Tanker pin. But when was it issued? Thanks.

    Hi Bob, all I can tell you is that the tank is a post war design.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The right one has something to do with mining.

    I HOPE you meant the left one! The right one has something to do with Tanks! Notice the club? The right one says "GOEDENDAG" on the bottom. What does that mean? The left one says: " KRATTE SVS MASUGN" Any idea what THAT means?

    As far as I know ( I am from Denmark - just next to Sweden) Kratte Masugn is a area in the part of Sweden called Dalarna. The Goedendag is probably a reference to a medieval club with spikes as explanind in Wiki (middle of page): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morning_star_(weapon)

    But I do not know of the origin of the rigth one...

    Hello!

    Masungn means the melting place where you melt the iron.

    The one on the left says something along the lines of a blast furnace or some such!
