    Josef Goebbels Youth Hostel Tinnie

    New tinnie. I've seen this one listed in the Littlejohn book. But the finish on this one seems very strannge...like a slightly textured sand finish on plastic. Anyone know why? The reverse says "F. Hoffstatter, Bonn".

    These particular tinnies are made of the same material as many of the May day tinnies. Some refer to the material as zinc-based or pot ash. Most examples I have seen are lacking the majority of the silver finish on the front and retaining most finish on the reverse.

    The price may seem a bit high to some collectors, but most HJ-related tinnies are currently selling at high prices. I believe the seller is offering to cover the shipping and paypal fees, so the actual tinnie cost is a bit lower than the price listed.

    Did anyone here at this forum end up buying one of these tinnies? I saw a few days ago the seller had reduced his asking price.

    yes I bought one just to see it and make a determination on it's authenticity. He had about a dozen of them but could well be a vet hoarde

    yes on WAF but I did not ask for any details he is a younger collector so would not trust any story. They look good and are not on any current repro list I know of so we will see. I will post detailed pics when it arrives. The one pictured above is exact but has oxidized some

    paul i hear you! the ones the young guy had for sale look very much exact like the one pictured?

    the young mans story(if he has one) COULD be true but as i learned early on and the hard way buy the item not the story! so why even ask whare and when as you say, young inexperianced/old experianced it dont matter as its the item you buy.

    are these hard to find paul? i trust when you see it you will know if its good or bad!! i look forward to seeing your input on them for future refrence.



    p.s sorry if the scot's language isnt readable as i have had a beer again :blush:
