    I have seen these for sale over on WAF and the seller says 'These were collected on the 8th & 9th of June 1940 by the Deutsches Jugendherbergwerk.'

    I like them

    Hello Sam,
    I do not collect tinnies.
    CM Alexander and another collector have just recently published a book on winterhilfswerk. If I had any questions regarding tinnies, Chrys is the one I would go to.
    Just for your information. ;-)

    Hello Eric,
    As I do not collect these, I do not know. I only posted this as a reference of Chrys's credentials.

    They are indeed donation badges for the Deutschen Jugendherbergwerk (German Youth Hostels). There were 12 in the series, six pieces that were made of both glass and plastic. They were distributed on the 8./9. Juni 1940, and have Tieste numbers of T021-026, followed by either a .1 or a .2 depending on if they are Glas or Kunststoff (glass or plastic). They are labelled Blut-Boden, Emtesegen, Heil, Kampf, Leben and Sieg.
