    That is a "Day badge" There was a set of them, don't remember how many,but around 6 or 7. Not fantastically expensive, about £20 but nice when they are in the set

    This is actually not a day badge, but WHW (Winterhilfswerk) badge - WHW was an organisation collecting money for poor families and other charity reasons, whoever made a donation, got some badge, chrismass tree hanger, small figure and stuff like that.
    Day badges were badges (tinnies) that were sold or given on certain occasions, like celebrations, public events etc., as a souvenir, or in return for small donation like WHW.
