    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    The winged hammer is NSHAGO (Nationalsozialistische Handwerks- Handels-, und Gewerbe Organization Ė essentially a commerce organization), and the round sunwheel type pin is for the Turnerbund (sport's organization). The latter actually isn't Nazi-related, as the swastika was in use by them many years before it was employed by Hitler and the National Socialists to represent their political party. In fact, I believe that NSDAP members were forbidden from joining.

    I can't identify the other one, but I'm sure that one of the (many) more knowledgeable members will be along to help you with that.

    Thanks Erno.

    Very much appreciated. Been getting hooked on these lately.

    Too bad the other is partially obstructed otherwise I probably could have figured it out.

    I am glad to help in a small way!

    I like stick pins as well. They're fun and remarkably detailed for their small size. At the moment, I'm trying to complete my collection of the KVK series in stick pin/miniature form. They are surprisingly very difficult to find, despite the reputation of the full-sized awards have of being extremely common. On the top of my list is a miniature KVM (dual-sided), but I have only seen one pictured so far and none for sale.

    The irony is that when they are offered for sale, it's usually at a low price! I bought both of my KVK I. Klasse stick pins for about $20 each, which is far less than the value of the much more common awards.

    Well if I happen to come across a two sided version, will let you know. There is just so much variety with stickpins and Tinnies.

    The tinnie on the upper left is from a 1933 Party Rally in Ludwigshafen...I agree with Erno, the others are Turnerbund and NSHAGO...
    cheers, Glenn
