    Default anybody have any idea about swiss badges??

    hi everyone, i bought a huge job lot of mainly swiss badges from an auction house recently, and have been slowly researching them bit by bit.
    I have now got to the "bottom of the barrel" and am really struggling to work out the last few.
    can anyone help with any of these?

    they look Swiss to me.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    1st of August is celebrated as Swiss National Day so maybe the first ribbon is connect to 1937 Swiss National Day?

    1291 is the year that the cantons of Switzerland joined together in a loose alliance that was the precursor of the modern-day Swiss confederation.

    The fact that this is the most useful thing I can produce in relation to this thread shows you that I will be of no real use at all.

    Corectamundo, the 1st of August is our national day. There have always been, and alway will be, 1st August abzeichen :-)
    These are the common ones though, and not worth anything really, a dollar or two if that.

    Maybe it's a day badge for the anniversary of the invention of the Emmentaler?
