    Thumbs up Please Post Your Favorite Day Badge or Tinnie

    Hello Folks,
    Tinnies or Day Badges are something we have all come across and I am sure we have kept a few along the way. So please post your favorite(s) here. Let us see what interesting ones come up.

    So please post-away!


    Here are two of my top favorites (I will post more later). One is a 1936 SA Group Nordsee Tinnie and the other is a 1936 Wesermünde Tinnie.

    I'm not sure if the Der Stahhelm belongs in the group, But that is how I have them in my display box.

    Very Nice!!!
    Just for my educational purposes .
    Did Tinnies come in a case?????

    One more request, Matthew could I get a straight on pic of the 3 Amigo's you posted?
    I'm not a serious Tinnie Man and I can't make them out.

    Straight pic of the Three Amigos a.k.a. 1929 Nurnberg Reichsparteitag Awards. While they started their lives as humble tinnies, later on they were elevated to the rank of NSDAP Honor Awards. Here they are with their families.
    The bigger pieces at the bottom are the non-portable versions of the same award- those did come cased.
    Please excuse the weak pic, they are behind the glass.

    Some 'tinnies' came cased although overwhelming majority were distributed as loose pieces.

    Last one. Although a common pin, not often seen in this configuration. Or color.

    Here is my "one and only". It is the Treffen Braunschweig badge. The pin has been re-soldered at some point but these 1st pattern badges are quite scarce so I can live with that! Leon.Click image for larger version.
