Original German WWII Tinnie Pin and Medal Collection - Set of 31

Item Description

Original Items: Only one set available. Acquired directly from a veterans family at a recent military show. "Tinnies" (Veranstaltungsabzeichen - Event Badge) are small commemorative pins or medals, acquired when one attended a specific event held in Germany. They were often made of thin stamped metal, bakelite, or even pressed paper. This collection consists of thirty one German WWII medals and tinnie pins. We have been able to identify these three, leaving the rest as a great research project.

- 1st Mai 1938 (May Day, labor day) Tinnie by Lindner & Maak of Dresden.

- 1934 Labor Day Tinnie maker marked on reverse: "24 PFORZHEIM"

- Leuchte Scheine Gold'ne Sonne über dieses freie Land German Tinnie, issued in the Gau 'Koblenz-Trier'. This was part of the WHW (Winterhilfswerk - Winter Help Work) series. The tinnie shows a man holding bundles of wheat with the sun over his left shoulder and a swas over his right shoulder. The script on the tinnie translates as: "Bright shiny golden sunlight over this free land". Additional markings on back.

All tinnies are offered in very good to good condition, though many are missing their pin backs
