    Dear Matt

    Many thanks for your input in keeping this thread moving, however I am now down to my last pin.

    "Bronze" GES GESCH with no makers marks, although it probably once had a makers sticky label attached, with no prizes as to who that was.

    Regards,

    David

    Another very educational thread with lots of nice examples shown --- thanks guys! I have been looking at this particular rpt badge for a while now, I may just be getting myself one this year... and thanks to this thread I feel a lot better prepared going after a genuine example!

    I think we know who the maker of your pin was. What is unclear is the finish of it. Typically the chocolate bronze coating (and protective lacquer) was only applied to the front of the bronze grade pins but yours is nearly evenly covered. Reminds me of some pieces I got in the past from households where lots of tobacco was used. Is that perhaps what we're looking at in this case?

    cheers

    Another bronze. This one rather pale shade of it.

    Followed by two silvers. One in tombak, other one in nickel silver. Both unmarked if memory serves. For some reason nickel base seem to accept the frosting differently on those- it stays almost milky white in contrast with silver colored details, while the tombak ones take on more uniform silver appearance. On the other hand tombak shows more depth in contrast with smoked shadow effects in lower spots against highlights.

    Sorry about poor pics, being away I can only use what I have on my comp.

    cheers

    This is the contrast between white frosting and nickel silver base I mentioned.

    Newest and smallest addition to the '29 family- chain miniature. Same size as the tombak stickpin version but in silver.

    cheers
