    Default Some tinnies to ID

    My dad brought me back some of these tinnies from Germany. It would be interesting to know what they represent. I posted the Hitler tinnie previously and received interesting comments. Just wonder what the others are. Thanks for your comments.

    Hi Pablo.

    These pins and badges were usually made to commemorate a rally or some other
    special event within the Third Reich.

    - '1/Mai 1936' tinnie, aluminum, this one is quite common. The 1st of May was
    Labour day. Similar badges read: 'Tag Der Arbeit' or 'Day Of Work/Labour'.
    - 1939 Kriestag or 'District Day' badge for Wiesbaden, plastic,
    - ( Hitler/Koln tinnie )
    - 1938 Hitler Youth pin - looks like it is also made of plastic.

    Some collectors focus on these badges alone - there seem
    to be hundreds of different ones.


    Yours are all 'good'.........!

    Hi Pablo

    Some extra info on top of what Steve has already helped you with:

    1 - Arbeit (T36-01). This was the first Arbeit tinnie that had the script Tag der Arbeit replaced with 1.Mai
    2 - Wiesbaden (T39-02)
    3 - Köln (T33-02)
    4 - HJ (T38-03b). This tinnie came in three types, 38-03a is the metal one, 03b is pasteboard brown, and 03c is pasteboard red.
