Tag Der Arbeit 1935
Tag Der Arbeit 1935 tinnie , Or.. May first labor day pins IMO are a great starting point for new collectors looking for inexpensive insights to the different metal workers / producers.. Many examples are individually marked "Maker Marked" and can provide a lot of fun hunting for enthusiasts new to the hobby as well as and including seasoned collectors... Just my two cents.... G

Indeed, so many tinnies are still available today at
reasonable prices - enough to keep a collector
busy for years - and a study in themselves.
The one above has to be the most common
I would think, next to the 1935 "Seefahrt
Ist Not" type.
Lol - I wonder if this 'Day Of Labour' was
actually a holiday......... ? !

Thanks for your replies.. I agree.... G
Hi G, I agree with the comments you made.
Hi Steve, yes it was a public holiday, introduced in 1934 as „Feiertag der nationalen Arbeit“.
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!
i like these "Tag Der Arbeit" tinnies, either worn or minty. i bought J. Angolia/D. Littlejohn`s great book, "Labor organizations of the Reich" to learn more about especially RAD. i thought earlier that the tinnies were for the NSDAP, but learned/read they were not.

Couple more designs from Prof. Klein that follow the tradition of the May 1st Celebrations.
Sadly the 1935 set is still missing from my collection however the '34 and '37 pieces are present for your perusal.
