    Good afternoon chaps,

    I have come across a little box of goodies today with some medals, tank destroyer bits and these pins. Within that box was Hat/Lapel Pins alsorts. I am trying to research these pins. Are they German? I have checked in a Militaria Book, but no such luck.

    Could you shed some light on what exactly are these Pins?

    Thank you

    I believe this may be for the Deutsches Wohnungs-Hilfswerk, a Welfare Organization that provided Housing Assistance for Refugees, etc...

    I can't positively ID it, but between the presence of a cross, a crown and the letter "D" in the abbreviation, I strongly suspect it to have something to do with the Diakonie (the welfare organisation of the Protestant Church).

    It could be for some Diakoniewerk.

    I take it their not worth much or not that rare. It was in a small box with a Second Class IC, first class IC, and Silver wounded badge Hat/Lapel pin.

    And thank you for telling me what they are.

    I do not anticipate much monetary value...
