Bill, thanks!

Yes, I remember the "great crash"; what a shame…

I always told myself that I would re-post my pictures that were lost when so many threads disappeared. Unfortunately, the necessary time has not been available, not to mention after several years of posting stuff, it is a daunting task to re-do it all. Not that I have that much stuff anyway. smile

But hey, posts and threads don´t seem to be the only things disappearing in GDC…

Thanks again for a fantastic thread!!

Good hunting,
Johnny

Johnny,

Firstly, thank you for the extra help on the translation, it does indeed help.

Secondly, I'm glad that you enjoyed the thread & thank you so much for the kind words, they are very much appreciated. As Bill said, there are a few of us still trying to keep this area of the forum going. However I try not to post to often as I do not want people to think "oh no, it's him again showing off..."

Thank you again, off now to put something on the "Organisational Badges with docs thread".

Cheers
Don

Gents,

A hunting/shooting/forestry related display I've put together for our friend and fellow collector, Gary Southgate. No matter if it's an elegant Hirschfänger or rare medal, 'baz' has an uncanny knack for finding the cream of the crop, in choice condition, too. grin

From the top left to right we have:

a member's pin of the Deutscher Falkenorden - Bund für Falknerei, Raubvogelschutz u. kunde.

Reichstierschutzbund

a pair of Mitglied badges from the Fachschaft für Foxterrier, F.Z.V., and R.D.J.

a complete set of (2.form) Deutscher Reichskriegerbund Kyffhäuser Schiessauszeichnung - bronze, silver, gold.

a twenty-five year service badge from the ADJV, the Imperial/Weimar Jagdschutz Verein.

Hope you enjoy these little delights. wink

Best!

Bill

Very very nice on a couple of levels. Good looking and interesting awards and equally good looking and interesting case.

Looks as though there is room to expand. smile

Always room for more goodies, right? grin

Lovely pin, too!

Joe,
I do like these Vet meister shooters, mine has lost it's gilding frown

Bill,
Thank you kind sir!
Some nice looking pieces you show there.

If possible, may we see the reverse of the badge at the top right please. There was a discussion on these over on WAF a couple of years ago & the consensus was that they are fantasy TR pieces based on the design of the badge that you show next to it......

Cheers
Don

Don,

That debate would be an interesting read for me. Should you ever come across it again would you let me know where I can find it, please?

If it is a reproduction, I'm struck by the high quality of the pin itself and the age patina, all nicely done. How much do these things retail for? If they're cheap enough, I'd advise buying one just to keep as a reference.

I took some shots of the Tierschutz-pin reverse along with a large Turnerschaft (gymnastics) award having a likeness of Friedrich Ludwig Jahn, their founding-father. Hope you can make out the 'ges.gesch.' My old camera doesn't allow for extra close macro shots ... grin hope these will suffice?

Appreciate your input, thanks!

Bill

Hi Bill,

Thank you for the extra pix. Seeing the reverse reminded me why we had concerns for the badge. It's the recessed square with the Ges.Gesch in which I hadn't seen before when these first appeared. Since then several fake badges of various organisations have turned up, all with the same recessed mark (see attached pic of a fake VDA pin).

I've just been over to WAF & found the thread which contains the discussion. You will need to read through the thread as the discussion is interspersed within it. http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/showthread.php?t=269996&highlight=Tierschutz

Cheers
Don

As a side note to my last post, I forgot to answer your question Bill re the price. I've just been over to Husken's site, he still has one on his site for 350 euro, but he doesn't show the reverse. He's had it for several years now. http://www.huesken.com/shop/de/organisat...bund-40682.html


Cheers
Don

Don,

Many thanks for the link, I enjoyed reading that discussion. The one thing I noticed right off was that Gary's has an entirely different pin assembly than the one that was pictured. That example had the later pin with the locking device that we associate with postwar badges, broaches, etc. So the recessed 'ges.gesch.' panel indicates postwar construction on any TR pin or badge that we might come across? If so, that's a good bit of information to know.

Since the time that that thread was written have you seen many of these Tierschutz pins for sale, I've never seen one before now?

Always good to hear and learn new things from gents like Don, thanks for sharing your experience and expertise.

Best!

B~

Ps you beat me to the punch ... do you think it's possible that there are real ones as well as fakes? 350E is nothing to sneeze at. grin

I think that it is safe to say that the square type recessed block seen here with the Ges sat on/above the Gesch has only been used on post war badges. I've only seen it in recent years & increasingly on badges definitely known to be fakes (& sometimes on oddities like these Tierschutze).

To complicate matters slightly there is one known example where very a early party badge which is believed to be original has a recessed Ges.Gesch mark similar to these. However, in that case the recess is a long thin rectangle (not a squarish block like those under discussion) & the words Ges.Gesch are side by side, not one over the other as seen on the fakes.

I have only seen a couple more Tierschutze since that discussion was written. The one on Hüskens site appeared at the same time as the thread on WAF & has not yet sold.

I'm always hopeful that there are originals of these, but at the moment I'm doubtful... frown

Cheers
Don

I thought that I would drag this thread, kicking & screaming, to the top once more.

Here is a set of Philipp Holzmann AG long service badges for 10, 15 & 20 years. I've shown the bronze before with a certificate on the badges & docs thread, but thought I'd post a scan of the set here....

Cheers
Don

Hi Don, cool I have yet to see one of those floating about. To find all three took quite a dedicated effort. Congratulations.
I was thinking I recalled a non portable award also?

To those looking into this thread many of the earlier pages obverses and reverse images are scattered. From page 27 on they are in order.

Those badges and pins are fascinating. Every organization, trade group, political party, etc, etc, seems to have had a pin or badge. Nothing similar - as far as variety - exists elsewhere.

I've found a badge that reminds me of the Traditions-abzeichen " RAD Arbeitsgau Bayern" , but I think it is not related to it ......Alpen, mountain climbers ?
