Don,
I do recall the Kurhessen - Kassel piece. The enamel color stands out.
The Sachsen-Anhalt piece is interesting. Partially cut out around the arms and an angular acorn.

Thanks for sharing Don.

Yes the Sachsen-Anhalt is an odd piece, it's almost as though the manufacturer lost interest in it & decided not to finish them properly....

Another little piece. I won't bother showing the whole pin as otherwise it would be all stick & no pin so to speak. As you can tell by the thickness of the pin this is a tiny piece from Lobeda which, since 1946, has been a district of Jena. This is a difficult pin to read with the naked eye as it is so small & the blue is such a deep colour. The semiquaver is visable but not so much the name... The reverse is marked to Carl Wild, Hamburg.

Nice Don. I like when they slip in a scenic view of the subject area.

Another very small stickpin this week. I assume going by the design of the Lyre that this could be for the Reichsverband für Volksmusik, however I've no idea what the letters represent....

Two pieces from the same group this week. Liedertafel Germania von 1851 from Wesermünde Lehe near Bremerhaven. In 1946 the group merged with M. G. V. Harmonie von 1868 & M. G. V. Concordia von 1888 to form the Chorvereinigung Concordia Bremerhaven e. V. who are still in existance today....

I will not bother with the reverses as they are totally devoid of markings.

Interesting details to the first pin.
I don't know where you keep locating the different pins, Don. Glad you do. Best of luck as you continue to build on these membership pieces.

Thank you Joe. I'm afraid that it's mainly the result of a misspent youth & to a lesser degree a misspent old age.... whistle

I know that you have a talent Joe for identifying wappen, well here's one for you to tackle. A very early button hole badge with a wappen hanger.... Sängerchor Deutscher Kameraden der Arbeit.

I belive it's Köln, Don. I'm surprised they did not enamel the dangly Wappen. Three gold crowns (for the Magi), on a red field, over eleven gouttes on a white field.
Another interesting badge.

Thanks for showing it Don.

Forgot that I had this little piece, probably more of a tinnie than an organisational badge for (I assume) the 75 years Jubilee of the music group in Wassertrüdingen.... confused

Hi Don, it does have a day badge look to it.
I can't figure out what is in the shield shape. Is it a folk singer's head above perhaps the castle roof and wall?

The more I look at it the more I think I'm seeing things. smile What I thought was a singing head is probably a cupola. They have some fancy roof architecture.

I think it's a cupola Joe. A stylised image of their town hall. if ylou look carefully at the bottom of the building on the badge, you can just make out the arched entrance.... Here is a full size crop from the badge plus a pic of the town hall today....

I've posted these before elsewhere so you may well have seen them before. Sängerbund Westmark from the Saar region. The standard membership pin along with the silver & gold honor pins. The reverses are marked to E.Schmidhaussler. Interestingly, each letter of the maker marks are individually punched out with a tiny pin or dot punch. The first time I saw this I was naturally worried as to authenticity, however, over the years I have seen many Schmidhaussler pins including Opferschiessen & other shooting pins marked the same way. I cannot imagine how long it took to punch out each tiny letter using a dot punch.... I'll only post one reverse unless you really want to see the others...

Due to the poor depth of field, the scanner doesn't really pick up the maker mark that clearly....

Hi Don. I do recall those pieces.
Interesting about the maker stamp. I will have to dig through my pile and see if I have a Schmidhaussler-marked piece.
My memory clicked slightly - is this the set that there is a variant? Something to do with Gau.

--dj--Joe

Added an image. Can you see the punch marks on mine? My old eyes aren't working.

I'm not sure that I can Joe, looks like yours is a full name stamp rather than pin punched letters.

You pre-empted me regarding the variant grin. There is indeed one, much rarer than the ones above, although I suspect that they are often missed as the difference is so small - Sängergau rather than Sängerbund. So far, all of the ones that I have seen, which isn't many, are unmarled to the reverse.

Here are my silver & gold honour stickpins. So far I have never seen, or heard of, a standard bronze coloured member pin with Sängergau. I will only show one reverse so save space.

Sangergau, that would be hard to see if not paying close attention. cool

I wasn't sure about the makers mark, the P appears to have small circular indentations.

I see what you mean. Maybe it is pin punched. If it is, it’s a lot neater than mine grin

I don't have any tinnies, pins, or badges but did run across a few paper items and hope it fits under the 'related items' term.
If nothing else the post will bring a fantastic thread btt. If you feel it doesn't fit don't hesitate to pull.

1) 1928 Hardcover book with many photos but the cool dust jacket made it imo.
