Thanks. I'll start a new thread either tonight or tomorrow. I have some of the items photographed but ran out of daylight. I forgot to say that the plaque goes on a flag pole. Not sure of the proper name for it.

Hello,
Raymond my apologies for not replying to you sooner regarding my kyffhauserbund badge, yes it still has the pin on the reverse but I do not see any markings on it. And thank you also for showing the medal with the ribbon on it. Very nicely done item. That plaque is quite nice too. Look forward to seeing more of yours and others collections.
regards
Bill

The only thing in my notes at the moment on the medal is 2nd. class Prussian Landeskriegerverband, Krieger Ehrenkreuz. Got to do some more research. Smile

Anything to add to this informative thread?
Would anyone care to write a little on the history of these organizations? If so please do, it would be a good addition to the thread.

A great old thread, although I'm surprised that the shooting badges aren't featured.

Here's some of mine....

Gold & the Meister...

The Gold isn't as bright as it looks, that's down to the glare of the scanner & the Meister has lost most of it's guilt. I should upgrade it really, there are plenty about.

I'll add some more later.

Cheers
Don

Nice set Don.
I wonder why no marks on the reverse of these badges? I don't recall seeing any marked examples and none of mine are. I'm still looking to add a gold example. Just haven't located the right one yet.

Thanks Joe.

I've no idea why these pieces were not marked, maybe it was due to the hollow type reverse? I've never understood the markings of vet badges anyway, as you know they usually just have a number like "1" or "5" etc. I've often though that these are planchet or die indicators rather than a manufacturer id but I'm not really sure.

Here are another pattern of shooter badge, I assume later as the quality isn't as high. These are a lot tougher to find than the previous design as well...

All are marked 1 with Ges. Gesch. The number is directly under the pin so may not be visible on the scans.

First the Bronze. I need to upgrade this piece if I can, it's not easy to see on the scan but the remains of the bronze finish can be seen on the butts in natural light.

Cheers
Don

Silver & Gold.

So far I've never seen a Meister that I've liked the look of (in fact I've only seen one example).

Very nice Don. If anyone can find a bronze in better condition I would guess you could.

In all my years collecting I have only seen your three and one other that sold before I could even ask about it.

I'd be happy to take the old example off your hands when you do upgrade. smile

Don,

You truly are "a man for all seasons..." wink

Many thanks for sharing your first-class collection and knowledge with us over the years.

Joe,

A sincere thank you for re-building the many informative threads and valuable information that we've lost. Your tireless efforts are very much appreciated!

Best regards!

Thank you Gentleman, it is much appreciated, & Joe, it's yours if I can find another....

I'd also like to join Bill in thanking Joe, not only for rebuilding the threads but for digging out old ones to see if anything new can be added.

Here's another Kyff piece, the last of the shooters I have. This one in bronze, I missed a silver a few weeks ago....

Bill and Don, thank you for the kind words.

My small efforts would amount to naught without generous knowledgable individuals such as the two of you and so many others who share rare and wonderfull items from their fascinating collections.

I have had much enjoyment over the years here seeing so many and varied collectibles that I would otherwise not have found the opportunity to see. I thank you all.

My regards, --dj--Joe

I have been very slow to add any items to my collection. Here are two recent additions.
The NSDMB (Nat. Soc. Deutscher Marine Bund), cap eagle I have had for years.

The NSDMB breast eagle and the NSRKB Honor shield are the recent additions.

Very nice Joe.

I thought That you may enjoy seeing a picture of a Marine Bund breast eagle in wear....

Also of interest is the small lapel which is for the Reichsbund Deutscher Seegeltung.

Cheers

Thank you Don. An interesting item for you to share with the community.

I'd sure like to stumble across some of the higher rank armbands.

Thanks Joe, they can be tough to find. The NSRKB version is shown in the little booklet that I posted back on page 11, see here . It can be found in either translucent or opaque red/orange enamel, these are the pin back versions....
