    Default HELP IDing LARGE LOT OF GIFT INSIGNIA + MORE!

    Hello, all!

    I just received this lot of insignia, badges, etc. for use in my classroom. A few of the items were easily identified, but most of them are a mystery to me!

    Can you fine ladies and gentlemen please help me identify these items?!

    If the person who gave me these items wishes to be identified, I will gladly do so!

    The coins are pretty much self-explanatory. The 2 larger coins are solid silver and the 1934 commemorates the Potsdam Military church. They're worth hanging on to-if, for the very least of the reasons, they're both considerably heavy silver coins. The nickel 1933 1 Mark is also somewhat collectable but not wildly so. The Hitler medallion is post-war and of no interest.(but it Might be solid silver also, from the look of it, so check it out before you toss it!) The Bon Pour looks like a French theater token? The 2 zinc's are basically just curio's as far as value. The larger pin used to be, what looks like a Mai Day tinny. I say "used to be"...lol
    I like the 2 spoons-especially the little bronze one made from the 2 Dutch coins. Both appear to be trench art?

    The silver "spoon" looks to be a shoe horn. It's hard to tell without something as a reference for size.

    Thanks for the responses, everyone!

    A vendor who I purchased a HJ knife from caught wind of my hands-on teaching methods. He gave me these in good-will to use with my students and even give away some to students at the end of my lesson.

    EDIT: Paul from Lakeside Trader sent me these. AMAZING FELLOW! AMAZING TO DO BUSINESS WITH!

    I donít know if its anymore interest to you , but your 2 reichmark coin is 62% silver and was minted in Berlin as indicated by the small A below the 1847. These werenít made after 1939.
    The silver coloured 1 reichmark is made of nickel and the two small 1 reichmark coins are made of zinc. There mint mark will be on the reverse side between the oak leaves.
    As I say you may already know this. I,ve got some of these and I like them.
    All the best
