    The 1st one is part of a set of WHW tinnies, not HJ, I think.

    Something tells me the Wolfsangel is HJ, I may be wrong. I have a relic one somewhere

    the first one could also be a dutch NSB tinnie. They also use the wolfsangel sign positioned in this angle on their badges.

    Hi Eddy, no, sorry it is indeed a WHW item. No Dutch connection in this case.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The Wolfsangel is a WHW-Pin issued on february 1. and 2. 1936 (Reichsstraßensammlung). They are five different pins with wolfsangel: darkbrown like yours, lightbrown, darkgreen center, lightgreen center and red center. All are made of leather.

    Hi Lee, the first one is indeed WHW, it is a donation badge from the 3WHW-5RSS, distrubuted on the 1/2.2.36 by the SA, SS and other formations. The collection was called Wolfsangel (wolfs angle), and yours is number one in the set of five (T033.1). There were 12,060,877 produced in Offenbach, Westerwald and Leipzig. The other item is a HJ tinnie (HJ 37-01).
