    Default Kyffhäuserbund pins - Imperial, interwar or TR era?

    Hi guys,

    I wondered if anyone could shed some light onto the dating of these pins. I have info suggesting they are from the period between 1920-1933, but I would appreciate if anyone with this knowledge could confirm or deny this.

    Thanks in advance,

    - Kenneth

    Gentlemen, although out of my scope, heres a quick history on the Kyffhäuserbund.. Kyffhäuserbund - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ..Kenneth, I would think you are right on the dates for your pins, around 1925 -1933. Im sure some one will put us right.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Hi

    I reckon their inter-war badges as well.

    They have the first pattern kyffhauser insignia (before the 1935 changes and addition of the nazi insignia) with the tower and flag underneath. Date wise I would say 1920's is likey IMO.

    The one in the middle is for a veteran with 25 yrs service.

    Hope that helps.
