nice one !
That is a real beauty you don't see them early tinnies often
Some fantastic tinnies,keeps me looking.Bones:tongue_smilie:
I bought this HJ tinnie 5 years ago at Helmut Weitze and I had paid it 75 Euro.
I have other tinnies of the same period, before the seizing of the power.
I think a tinnie article with just photos would be fantastic. I don't much about them so I would not really understand how to group them. By year perhaps? I would be glad to help someone with an interest in tinnies set this up.
I leave you with a classic, but still a really beautiful one.
It is the Potsdam 1932 one, Bronze version. As Garry told us here:
Potsdam, Arbeiterjugend, HJ honour badge
There are 2 types of badge, the one in Silver for the participans and the one in Bronze to buy for the spectators.
I am not sure about the following, but I believe this one was the biggest HJ event to date. Even Hitler doubted that Von Schirach was going to be able to gather so many HJ in one place. Kids who came from all over Germany...
I believe that even Hitler wasnt going in that event, until he heard that amount to kids who assisted. Then he quickly went to Potsdam from Berlin to be part of that adventure.
Hope somebody here can correct me if wrong.
About the pin, it is just a lovely one. The one that I am showing is one that I just received. It is a bit damaged and the clip falled and was fixed again, but really poorly made.
Having said that, I lvoe it... and the price... well, not even a 25% of what it normally costs... so happy days.
