  1. Thank you Gentlemen, I must admit that I was surprised to see it & at a price that I really felt that I could not leave it there... D
  2. Hi Dion, Welcome, good to hear from you after all this time. D
  3. Very nice! Is yours cased? They usually come with a small case. Here are my 25 & 40 Years. Both are cased but unfortunately I haven't taken a picture of them in their cases yet. Thanks for posting. Don
  4. I picked a membership book for these up for a couple of Euros the other week. I had only ever seen single sheet member cards before (see post #38) so decide to break my rule of only buying Tirol items to get it. 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. Cheers Don
  5. Sorry for my late reply, been under the weather lately.... Very nice Robert, a new one for me as well. It reminds me of the "flag day" type badges that we had when I was a lad. People on the street corners shaking their collection cans would clip a simiar type of badge to your pocket or button hole if you gave them a couple of pennies for the cause that they were collectin for. Nice find.
  6. I think it's Dr. Franke & Co., Ludenscheid?
  7. Very nice Robert. Joe, The F&R badges are discussed on page 1 of this thread.... Don
  8. Hi Vladimir, You are welcome. I have sent you a pm regarding further information on these badges. Don
  9. Thank you for posting this portrait. I know the person who owns this actual photo & has been studying this badge for a few years, he believes it be a "Dienstabzeichen für weibliche Zivilangestellte des DRK". Baisically a service badge for female civilian DRK workers. Cheers Don
  10. Can you get a larger scan Robert? It looks like 146 on my screen. Nice piece either way. D
  11. A nice comparison Robert.. Have you noticed the similarity between the letter S in Reichsbund on the Seiboth piece & the anniversary pieces? Happy New Year to you & all the other members of GMIC. Don
  12. Hi, Welcome to the forum. I'm afraid to say that this badge is a fake. Apart from the black ring around the front edge, more obvious signs which show it is bad are the small oval coffin shaped plate attaching the pin to the badge which were never used during the Third Reich period & the RZM symbol which is in the circle on the reverse. The Opferring were not under the juristiction of the RZM so the symbol would never be on one of their badges... Sorry Don
  13. Ahh! So you got it. I wondered who had nabbed it, good score & I'm pleased to see that it went to a good home. D
  14. Yes he is referring to the marked versions of these.... He says that he believes that the ones with maker marks may be the fakes rather than the unmarked ones...
  15. Personally I like them. It's the unmarked ones that I've often wondered about.
