New title old content. I hope!
This is the piece that started it all for me. The seed from which my whole collection grew.
Joe how many years have you been collecting ?
Take a look at your e mail.
Jamie, you've been busy!
Thanks. We'll see.
The answer to your question is 40+ great years.
Last one for tonight.
Almost an ArtDeco look about this one.
I like that one, sleek, powerfull design.
Here is a DJ a HJ/DAF and a DAF.
Always liked this one.
How common is this particular Tinnie?
A tough question to answer. I would say the largest percentage of tinnies are quite common.
Like the vast majority of mine.
District day at Aachen, I would say common but still a well balanced design with the cathedral spires under the eagle.
Some common HJ's
A nautical theme.
Next from me.
This is a pretty one.
Same format..different badges....
A few of mine.
Im seeing items I had not seen before.

How many tinnies do you have?
Thanks Tom, I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing the tinnies you posted.
I do not actually have that many more, perhaps enough to finish out this page. Then we'll have to start up a WHW tinnie thread.
Here is one befitting the season.
No 2. Whats it say?
Wood, I believe it says, Wir Opfern Nikolastag. We gave Saint Nicholas Day.
Thanks DJ and the same to you, and everyone else looking.
This is tiring, so much to scan, edit and save etc.
No.12 a late date for tinnies
No.17 Appears to be metal inlaid into the plastic.
This is really a great thread!!
dj , I really like the design on that reserve one...
Wood, I've had #12 a few times beside being late it was one of the heaviest tinnies I've had. Is yours heavy? , G.
Yes Gaspare very heavy and the only one I have seen, but you never know...only a few thousand to get now!
Wood, thanks much for all the effort it takes to post those! There were quite a few I had not seen before. Interesting, interesting tinnies.
Had to load and size some more also.
Wow..so many that I've never seen!! I will have to sit down with my tinnie books and check them out.
This is one I just got this week.Always liked this design.

Pete,That was an impressive grouping of tinnies. I admire that ceramic example.
A couple more from me.
Last one till I load and size a few more.
DerJäger, I have a brother from Leipziger Messe
burt in red and two years older.
For all that appreciate tinnies you may want to check out, The Ruptured Duck.
This is my fisrst visit to this forum. Thought I would show a badge I got out of a Vet's cigar box last month.
Nice to see you over here Jeff.
Here's another version of the tinnie, spot the difference?
Colorado and Don, thanks for sharing those.
Your date is different. I had not seen that one before. Is mine Version 1? or is yours a factory error?
I think yours was for selling "on the day", whereas mine would be the general money raiser sold perhaps throughout the month.
Joe - Happy to share. I only have a few day badges. Here is another that I kept. Like the one above, it has the visual appeal that made me want it.
It is very large for a day badge and quite heavy.
PS - Don, I kind of suspected that. In terms of value and rarity is there a difference between the two?
Another nice one.
Re the Thüringen, they are both difficult to find (I suspect due to their likeness to the Gau), but I haven't noticed one being more so than the other. I seem to arrive on the scene just as they've been bought by someone else
I paid $100 for mine.
DJ...Took your advise and checked The Ruptured Ducks tinnies..Wow!
After seeing Bill's prices, I am going to up the insurance on my collection...
A variation on the Thüringen theme.
Hope i am not duplicating anyone's badge,,as they are all great,,,DAVE H

Heres one I scanned to help someone else, the much reproduced Volkswaggon tinnie. This is made from alluminium.
Is this a tinnie??
It is a tinnie. 1st Franken-Ostmark meet of the H.J. at Nurnberg. The eagle and bars are a heraldic device of Nuremberg.
sorry for bad photo,,,, This is a heavy zinc one also on the large side, size 2.5cm X 2.5cm. Also pin broken off and glued to a jewelry box by an family member.

Good one Don.
Have not posted anything here for some time.
I am wondering if this is simply a tinnie that got elevated (price and importance wise) out of proportion by the collecting community?
This has turned out to be one of the best threads around! Thanks to everyone that has posted to this topic this is one heck of a reference. I've highlighted this one for our reference, keep posting those badges so we can get the best reference around.
After looking at all these rare tinnies from so many members no one has mentioned the guru of tinnies and WHw in Germany Reinhardt Tieste. He has out several books which IMO are the bible for collectors today and he sells also. His English is excellant and a pleasure to deal with. his URL is below have a look and I highly recommend his tinnie bookshttp://www.tieste.de/
Here are some of the tinnies that came with a collection I purchased several years ago: This is the way I got these and frankly I don't think I've ever had them out of the tray. Sorry about the glare on this picture.
Top part of Rikker tray: What amazes me somewhat is the varying materials used.
Bottom part of Rikker tray: My own favorite is the 1933 Nurnberg and you see an example 3rd from the left bottom row. I have a couple of these.
At todays values Jim from what I can make out you have a very nice little investment there nice find.
Jim m, we of course are going to try and talk you into opening the Riker mount.
I would like to see the fourth from the left, second row from the bottom.
Nice collection and thanks for sharing it!
4th from left: obverse:
4th from left reverse:
some of my tinnies
5 small swastikas in collar and lower hem
Jim m, thanks much. I thought thats what it was, good looking piece!
Paul, my thanks for showing your tinnies. I admire the Munchen piece and the Sangerfest!
I though I'd add this one as I think it's kind of neat!
8 small but the red swas is neat
I particularly like the SA ones. I don't know if anyone has ever estimated the number of different tinnies produced but it must be substantial.
I got the two books from tieste and there are over 1,400 pages of tinnies listed then there are whw etc it is a huge field
and this a three tinnies from my hometown in germany, but I look and look and cannot find them anywhere.
Kreistag der NSDAP
thats the only one I found so far
I found all three you list plus one in TIESTE'S book two. It is Krissangerfest 30.6.1935. He lists them all in the 20-30 euro range
Hello Paul, do you mean you have this badges? Because I look to add them into my collection. I have also one of the Tieste books, where my copys are shown in one of his books. Is there another badge that I missed? I think you mean Kreissängerfest or? Could you send a copy that I see how this badge would look?
Hi Robert I think you are missing edition 2 go back to page 8 on this thread and you will find a link to his homepage . if you wish to buy it his cat number is WINDSHEIM 35-O1 20 EUROS
another tinnie this one is odd no date but patented on reverse ges. gesch
I'm not a big tinnie collector, but I pick the occasional one up now & again. I found these 2 by accident while sheltering from the rain in a doorway in Salzburg last week......
Both very nice tinnies Don. They both have well balanced designs. It is raining here at the moment, think I will go out and walk about.
Anybody seen this one before? Deschler marked. Just got it today.
Jeff,this one is listed in TIESTE'S book 2 cat#
33-01 at 30 euros.Nice one.
That's a nice sharpe badge. I especially like the effect of the wheat sheaf.
Thanks for sharing.
Sooo Colorado, your the one who beat me to that one. Nice piece.
Not my latest pickup in the tinnie line, but a very nice enameled one. Maker:- M. Hansen, Kiel.
Slick the way they displayed the swastika. Kiel week = sailing event.
A couple new ones to add
Here is a rare and expensive one
Very nice, but that last one is not strictly a tinnie, it's a participants badge for the 1938 Reichsberufswettkampf, for which the Kreissieger, Gausieger & Reichssieger were awarded to the finalists.
I think there are several classes of tinnie but in the end they are all tinnies as TIESTE has stated in his two huge volumes.Might be a good discussion topic though what is a tinnie ?
some of my DAF/NBSO/KdF/NS-Hago Tinnies.
Nice grouping I see you have the rare and often copied Volkswagon commemorative tinnie. Any chance of some close ups of this rare one for the record here.
sorry for the wwifue badge
Many thanks for the view the the VW tinnie. The other piece appears to be an award of some type ? Never seen it before
thank you ! The "unknown" award is the economic leader badge. Only presented to economic leaders, like Dornier, Heinkel, Messerschmidt, Amboss, Krupp etc. (ca. 440 pieces were presented)
Nice VW tinnie, Florian, thats only the second one I've seen on any forums that I believe to be genuine, mine being the other. Its made of aluminium. Oh yes, the Economic leaders is quite nice too!
EARLY GLIDER TINNIE
some more tinnies
The tinnies thread has lain dormant for a time, thought it might be time to bring it back up.
I appreciate every one who has contributed and the time and effort it takes to do so!
Any one got more to share? I have posted the majority of what I have but will dig through them and see what I can find not yet seen.
Joe, I hope i am not posting some tinnies that have already been showm...DAVE H
Here you go Joe.
Wood, great tinnies ,thanks for sharing...DAVE H
Thats all for now folks.
Dave, Pete, that was an enjoyable display of tinnies!
Most of them I have never seen before. Soon as I get my thoughts gathered I will ask some questions.
For now my thanks and regards, Joe.
I rattled the plastic container my tinnies reside in but nothing new shook out.
I will post this one even though it has been seen before. We'll give it a close up look.
Close up, maker mark.
Few more,,first one gronegau?? hand made..1 1/2" dia...Dave H
tag der wehrmacht
Fantastic thread. 10 years ago this kind of info was simply nor available. most of the books would have been black and white.
It sure would be helpful if you could tell us non-initiated observers what these are. Some guys have but others have not.
Dave Hohaus, guess we'll have to work on descriptions.
Most tinnies (event badges) tell a story through words and images and cover a set period in time. Others were reissued for similar events on different dates.
Some that do not say anything are anybodys guess.
Any one wish to add anything?
Dave H, that hand made tinnie is a nice piece to own. Never seen one marked that way!
Pete, I like the uncomplicated but stand out design of post #12, the SA and post #30, the Flugtag Cottbus tinnies.
Would the KdF tinnie post #35, be made of an unglazed ceramic material?
Thanks again to all, for sharing these great and interesting items!
Hi Joe, I first thought that the KdF was plaster, but upon inspection, I think its paper mache (pressmasse)
For Dave a description of post 35. The green heart. Thuringen was described as the green heart of the country, and had, presumably, nice countryside, and was evidently a favorite spot for visitors, hence the KdF (Kraft durch Freude) taking people for visits there. Now here I get a little hazy. I believe that the KdF was organised to take factory etc. workers, who could not afford proper holidays on free or subsidised vacations to different places, not only inside Germany, but abroard as well.
I dont think I'll be doing this for each tinnie!
Anyway another:- for a trip to motor show in Berlin?
Paper mache, I never thought of that. Thanks Pete.
I posted this pin in an earlier thread, but I do not think that thread gets many hits so once again.
VOLK FLIEGE WIEDER
Any one else? Any new ones? Any old ones?
I think that it's from a sporting event for the Franken group.
I believe that it was struck from a metal that is similar to tombac.
The print on the catch plate in back reads...
I have no clue about this one. Clearly it's an HJ. But, I have not yet translated the writing. Any ideas?
It is molded white plastic.
Robert, both nice pieces! SA related tinnies command a high price.
The HJ tinnie refers to a sports event for Austria.-----------------------
Sport Westkampf (west fight
Kampf must not translate well into English.(See correction, 5 posts below).
Tirol and Vorarlberg are both western states of Austria. (See attached link).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vorarlberg
Thanks for showing these interesting items.
Still hopeful for more contributers.
My thanks to all who have shared from their collections.
I believe my only daybadge
And a very nice one, ceramic. Thanks much.
It's not "Sport Westkampf", it's "Sport wettkampfe", it means 'Sports Competition'. The design of the eagle on this white plastic badge is of the Tirolean eagle.
Schlesien, thanks for the correction.
Here a rare SA tinnie......Traditions Day Meeting of SA Standarte 16 ( Rhine area ) .
Text below the heads "Our Faith Carries Us".
Benten, good looking SA tinnie.
One I have not seen untill now, interesting design, thanks.
Thanks Joe, it is a large one, exactly 5cm across.
After the Putsch in München and Hitler's prison-time,to get the power, the Nazis made a new start in 1925 .....this time on the "legal" political way.
This tinnie; Celebration of 10 years NSDAP in Thüringen 1925 - 1935.
backside...........These tinnies corrode quickly, fortunatelly this tinnie got a varnish.
Kreisappell der NSDAP (in) Moers 12/14 6, 1936 .
Benten, I like the symbolism represented on both of these tinnies.
The strength of the eagle clutching the laurel leaves , the crest.
The wheat stalk, sword and hammer. Much design thought went into these items.
Joe thanks for your reply.
I post the Thüringen tinnie here again, for the next reason....
In the corner of the picture you see the official old coat of arms used in Thüringen from the Middle Ages .
The Nazis showed this old symbol in their own vision of history !! ...the old lion got a swastika.
In fact it is history-forgery........but it makes the tinnie more interesting.
Here the Thüringen tinnie..........
Benten, good idea with the inset of the crest. Appreciate it.
Sunweel tinnie.I think it's here on a good place
BDM , Bund Deutscher Mädel (League of German Girls). Untergau Treffen Augsburg- Zusmarshausen 1934.
Backside.........Maker mark: C. Drentwett Augsburg
That's a keeper!
Schokohaus (chocolate business) Resüwa in Berlin 1933, Chocolate association meeting . The NSDAP is also involved in (sweet) business ; you don't expect that directly if you collect tinnies
Any info is welcome.
Benten, good looking tinnie. Nothing comes up on a search for RESÜWA.
Joe thanks for searching , it is not easy to find info about Resüwa.
There is a simularity between chocolate and NSDAP; ..... BROWN
Nice stuff! RESÜWA might stand for Reichs Süsswaren
BTW this must be one of the rarer badges as the RESÜWA must have been merged or rather was taken over by the RNährstand in 1934,February.
Thank you for your good info.
It looks as though you are a serious student of first-class tinnies, thanks for the great photos and explanations! Please show us more of your outstanding collection, I haven't seen any of these before..?
Bill, thank you for your kind words.
One of my favorites……2e Bezirkssportfest Starnberg 1936. Bezirk is the neutral word for district ; it is located in (Gau) Bayern. You would expect instead of "Bezirk", the Nazi-classification word "Kreis"- Starnberg... ?
Note the difference between the birds ; a cheerful and a grave one. The left one is the crest of Starnberg, the second the nazi-eagle of the well known Deutscher Reichsbund für Leibesübungen, free translated German national league for gymnastics.
Crest of Starnberg....
Benten, yes, please do continue to share from your collection.
Appreciate seeing so many interesting tinnies.
Joe,I feel honored
Here a nice tinnie... Reichs Kolonial Bund(RKB ) .
Text; "Mitteldeutsche Kolonialschau Wien 1940.
The emblem above the eagle exists as an RKB-enamel member badge. Below the African colonies.
Why Mitteldeutsch( translated; Middle German) ? Wien (Vienna) where the show was kept was in the south of Nazi-Germany . http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_German
The Germans had more colonies....if you are interested, see this link; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_former_German_colonies
Benten, indeed a great example! The only example I have has been shown but here it is once more.
Joe, that is a nice one! It is good to place tinnies with same topic together.
WHW 1939. Tag der Wehrmacht Münster.Westf(alen);... raising money for the begin of the war in sept. 1939 .
Realize the quantity of materials they used to make “just” a WHW tinnie .
- 1 an iron core,
- 2 bronze finish on the front
- 3 silver finish on the rear.
- 4 brass needle
- 5 tin / lead for the solder.
I like the perfect combination of the Artdéco eagle and the Gotic script "WHW".
Tinnie KdF Gau Köln Aachen.
Text above ; Nach harter Arbeit , Kraft durch Freude.
After hard labour, Strength through Joy.
Text below ; N.S.Gemeinschaft K.d.F. Gau Köln Aachen
National Socialistic Community K.d.F Gau Köln Aachen
I ‘ve red in the book about the KdF of Baranovski ( Robert !) that you these badges were given/sold when you took a tour with this local KdF .
I think the wavy line through the KdF- emblem below signifies the river Rine.
The crisp blue paint has come off for a part , many these tinnies have this.
Much depicted on the KdF tinnie. I never thought about the ribbon representing the river.
Kreistag der NSDAP des Siegkreises 1935. District meeting of the NSDAP of the district (of the little river ) Sieg, near Siegburg Westfalen. I love the design of the strong eagle in front holding the branches and in the background the German landscape with vinyards in the hills , medieval castles and the river with boat.
Here the picture.....
Benten, well framed design to the 1935 KREISTAG.
This was my last pickup. Not sure if an example is posted on the preceding pages or not.
SKAGERAK 1916 / KIEL-LABOE 1936.
Interesting badge Joe.
It depicts the Marines memorial in Laboe ( Kiel ) of WW1 ( first stone in 1927 ), erected for the fallen marines and sailors.
Your tinnie has the date 1916 ; it is concerning WW1 the seebattle Germans against the Brittons at Skagerrak in 1916.
The second date of your tinnie….. ( 31mai ) 1936…. it was inaugurated again in the Third Reich . Later in wartime it was also a memorial for WW2 marines and sailors. It is 85m high ; that is very high!
Here some pictures………
a close picture..........
Benten, thank you for posting the pictures and the info., it is indeed an interesting, inspired structure.
It brings to my mind images of a sail and a prow cutting through the water.
I see a U-boat in the first image.
One of my favourite tinnies……….
The “Brigade Aufmarsch 45 , 24 Juni 1934 “. This meeting was a few days before the Night of the long knives.
The SA was on top of it’s power.
They became a threat to the NSDAP. In the weekend of the Night of the long knives , most of the SA topmen were killed by the NSDAP.
As far as I know a brigade is a very large military unit, the SA were not the soldiers of the nation ( that was the Wehrmacht) , but they used the term ” brigade”.
Maker : "Danner Mühlhausen ( Thur ) . City of Mülhausen in Thüringen , in the centre of Germany.
I like it. It has that hammered finish effect!
Thanks Joe; I appreciate your reply.
Here another tinnie ; Reichsparteitag 1935. After the struggle of 1934 (Röhmputsch)....... The symbolism on this tinnie NSDAP, SA and Wehrmacht are depicted. I see on this tinnie the symbolism of consolidation of the Wehrmacht and Sa under the power of the NSDAP. Now they (NSDAP) have won all the power. All under the wings of the NSDAP Adler (Eagle).
This tinnie has it's original color....braun finish.
Benten, That's a nice example. For the sake of me not straining my brain, what would NBG. represent?
Obverse of my example. Showing a little more wear.
Thanks for posting your nice tinnie Joe.
When I started to collect I never had encountered or seen these badges with the brown layer, so my first Reichsparteitag 1935 is one without layer.
I'm not sure, but probable the logo "NBG" means Nürnberg.
A very nice KDF tinnie. One of my favourites.
I believe there is also a KDF tinnie with text “Norway” with more or less the same design.
Thanks for posting.
One to post. New to me.
Enamel. I assume it's a tinnie. I always categorized it as such.
Reverse did not scan sharply, but here it is for what it's worth.
Nice find Joe. Seen a few of these & I've often wondered what catagory it should be in.
I'm going to un-feature this topic for a time. If interest in day badges/tinnies picks up it can be re-featured.
Here is a nice Friekorps..
sturmbrigade,,,Freikorps Wurzburg ??
sorry loaded the wrong pic!
man way too many red wines tonite - i will try again in the morning when sober :
Sturmbrigade, thanks for posting your tinnies.
Sorry I do not know a thing about either but I appreciated seeing them.
Does this DLV tinnie show up in any of the tinnie books?
yes DJ in TIESTE'S VOL 1 Page 152 DLV 00-33
VALUE 30 EUROS
Paul, thank you.
heres a few
Is that OK Joe, my fingers are tired, more later.
Pete, thank you! You certainly did have some to share.
I saw quite a few that I would deem myself lucky to own.
I for one appreciate seeing all you have posted and the effort that goes with posting them.
One of my favorites is the 1933 RPT Badge
Another cool tinnie
Erich, thank you! Much appreciated, I like the Düsseldorf piece!
I wish more collectors who appreciate tinnies would speak up! It has to be disheartening to go to all the effort to copy,size and post and then recieve one or two comments then nothing more.
a real one finally

Yes definitly OK, I was tempted by this one myself. But he who hesitates.....
Sorry Joe, I've been getting lazy of late.
Very nice Gentlemen.
Erich, I love the Schlageter, never tire of seeing it.....
Don, as much as you contribute, never a need for penitence! My comments were not pointed in your direction nor in the direction of any of our consistent contributors.
These started as Tinnies but later became official awards.
29 RPT. The Treffen badge is a later zinc Assmann.
Erich, thanks for posting both nice pieces!
Here is my zinc 31 Treffen badge. Painted a dark grey (same color as the tank on my 25 PAB).
The obverse may be a tad over sharpened but it was either that or under sharpened.
Reverse, The M1/17 mark is there but I can not get it to show and maintain the color.
Thanks Joe, My badge has the same markings as yours on the reverse. Best, Erich
What was it for?
Barker, thanks for sharing. I still do not know what the first one is for. The second is a first time see for me. Sonnwende = summer equinox festival. Usually spelled out Sonnenwende.
Well, the winged wheel is something to do with the Reichsbahn and the feather (pen?) is probably for writing (Beamten?) A German member may recognise the church/townhall whatever, and so give us a possible location. Though the towers look Eastern in style. Any makers name/mark?
The second is a nice early piece and Joe said it all.
I think the towers are Munich. Photo of maker mark.
Yup, you'r right. Just checked Tiestes books, and the towers are on other Munich tinnies. Can't find this one in there at the moment. It's not under Munich or in the unknown section. However he has only 12,500 or so listed and I have a few not in there, so it must be a little unusual perhaps. Odd pin with the protcective loop broken/missing from the end, or is it just bent?
Pin is all there, just bent at a 90 to the badge. looks like it was done to make it easier to fasten.
Common Tinnie, uncommon modification. Anyone ever seen this modification? Vet pickup so "almost" has to be TR period modification.
I've not seen split rivets done before.
For attaching to a belt?
Locking this thread. 16 pages are a bit much to scroll through.

Day Badges/Tinnies thread #2
--dj--JoeContent should be saved for now.
Let that read 15 pages, I had to delete a number of linked images that were no longer with us.
1933, Sonnenwende Zeitenwende Bergisch Land. This is a heavy badge and ca 4,8cm high.
Material brass colored.
I suppose this badge rare?
All nice examples.
The 42 is interesting.
Other than without a doubt a period piece. RAD like you state. I have not seen or read of one before.
Nice tinnie. Thanks for showing it. I hope someone has knowledge of it.
I think it could also be FAD related.
Hi Joe, thanks for your reply.
