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

Cheers

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.

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!

Bill

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.

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.

Sorry for the late reply...

No I've never seen an anniversary pin with a maker mark. I've often wondered why..

I have noticed some similarities between the shape of the letter S in Reichsbund on the Seiboth made pieces & the anniversary pieces, so whether that is an indication of a maker of the anniversary pieces I cannot say.

Came across this odd thing a couple of weeks back. Not fully sure what it is or whether it is genuine... Looking at the fixings on the reverse, the only thing I could think of was possibly a cap badge or a device for an armband, however I have never seen any mention of a uniform or such for the organisation.

It's huge compared to the membership badges, coming in at 4.5cm which is just under 2 inches!

Enjoy.

Don

Thank you for your comments gentleman, however the organisation is not in question as you can see from the earlier posts in this thread. The problem is that so far no evidence that I am aware of indicates that there was any kind of uniform associated with them. So if genuine, what was the use of this badge. Was there a uniform with a cap, or just an armband with this badge attached?

Thanks
Don

Sorry, jumped in without reading the rest of the thread. Looking through my references, there was not a uniform for this organization listed. These are considered membership badges that were worn on any clothing. In several past auction lists, the badges with the prong type pins are referred to as cap badges versus the clasp pin type identified as membership badges. This designation is in line with the use of various hunting association badges with different style pins. No period references that I could find to identify usage.

Random thoughts. Something to pin to a window curtain or streamer? Not for a flag I wouldn't think as the flag would already have the emblem on it.
Funerary banner?
Piece to pin on a photo album?
For an armband seems feasible. I wonder what armband the organization wore?
A pin for a civilian Gardners headgear. Did German women wear straw bonnets?
