    Default 1936 Olympic Press Passes

    Could use some help identifying what these were used for. They don't appear to be the normal press passes issued by the Third Reich, more so something that would've been attached to camera cases/luggage. Any help would be appreciated.

    The only reason I believe this is because Yugoslavian is spelled in the correct German. Would you consider selling two of them for my personal collection?

    They are very 'new' looking. If they were luggage tags etc,
    I'd expect to see repeats. Also, shouldn't 'France' be
    'Frankreich' or 'Frankenreich' ? And what about
    'Japan' - is this correct ?

    Just my first thoughts.........
    Regards,

    I sent hi-res photos of them to an appraiser. He's still looking into them and says they look good and seem to have never been issued. I'll let you guys know his final thoughts on them.
