    Hi everybody,

    Glad to find a very interesting forum about WW2 items.

    - Luftsport Hilft Deutschland


    - Kreistag Der NSDAP


    Many Thanks

    One is a an SA pin the others appear to be tinnies? I'm not sure I've seen the airplane? on orage background before but not the green. Everything else I have no idea just a guess.

    Hello Antoine,
    the first picture is of a winged swastika and I think it is just a tinnie, I thought it may have been a DLV badge but it isn't. You then have an SA members stick pin.
    The small round badge with the aeroplane on is a 'Help the German Airsport' badge...another tinnie. I am sure the orange background is Baltic amber. The green plastic one is a town festival tinnie for Cologne.
    I would like to see the two enamel badges that you have tucked away at the edges of your pictures and also one of the back of the winged swastika
    All the best
    Doug

    Hi Doug, Thanks for the answer. I will post them later after work, there is about 20 french badges.
    Anyway I'm not really sure about the french translation of "Tinnie" ?

    And thank you Mr Mosel ;-)

    A 'tinnie' is the name given to the small, mass produced badges that were sold to raise funds for different causes. The is a great thread here: WHW Tinnies which shows a the very wide ranging and varied field of the 'tinnie'.
    Some were made in tin, others in plastic, wood, zinc, card or paper, cloth. The name 'tinnie' is just a collectors term for these badges.
