I've found another maker. BH Mayer, Pforzheim. The pin plate resembles those used by Deumer.

Cheers
Don

Thanks Joe, it'a all down to pure fanaticism & insanity Big Grin

Here's a brooch for Frauen & Töchter. It doesn't really belong here I suppose but what the heck...

These came in four types, two silver "hellsilberfarben" & "altsilberfarben" & two gold "hellgoldfarben" & "altgoldfarben". Basically brightly polished or aged, this is the "altgoldfarben" or old gold version.

Cheers
Don

I hope someone does. I do not run across these anywhere I look.
For the last year or so I have not run across much of anything I am searching for from site listings or my one show. It's been a slow year.

Don, will keep my eyes open for you. I do not have any of the dated examples. Was the order 20,25,50? No 10 or 40 year?

Thanks Joe.

Good luck finding the 10, they're harder to find than the 20 & 25's Confused.

Thanks to Joe who posted a link to this on another thread, I've been reading through it again.

I didn't realise that I hadn't posted my "altsilberfarben" brooch for Frauen & Töchter that I picked up a couple of years ago.

The gold version is on the page before this....

Cheers
Don

Don,

These are two exceptional pins, I never saw them before either.
Super oak leaf patterns and really a great design overall. Hope you'll be able to find all the variants someday.

Appreciate you sharing tasty bits like these with us!

Best regards!

Thank you Gentlemen, I'm glad that you liked it.

Joe,
I my dreams! I'd be happy with a pic of the standard badge in wear cry

However, I picked this up this week & thought that I would share. An Urkunde presenting the newly created Reichsbund badge to the Vereinsleiter in recognition of his service & contributions.... Dated Sept 1938, so now we know when the badge was introduced.

I wonder whether the one that came with the Ukunde was cased?

The front cover is embossed with an image of the badge, I included a close up scan of that.

Cheers
Don

An interesting item Don. Never saw one before but seem to recall something like it depicted on a day badge.

Happy new Year.

Day badge is back on page 4 of this thread.

happy new year guys...

- the embossed Urkunde is really nice!

Wow. what a flag ,,if authentic [and has the look] there's probably not many survivors! These pieces in general,,,just something you don't see much of if at all even at the bigger shows..

It is a nice piece isn't it.

Good memory Joe, I'd forgotten that tinnie....

Also on page 4 is a picture of my membership card, a simple double sided sheet. A couple of years ago I found a membership booklet for them as well, I didn't realise that I hadn't posted it here, so here goes. The bright light of the scanner has burnt out the colour of the cover which is green. There are 16 pages containing rules & regulations etc. Here are a couple of examples.

The numbered badges are not maker marked. Wonder why? Have you noted a marked numbered example Don?
