Enamel & membership badge manufacturers database

Recommended Posts

I thought that we may try something a little different here, how about an enamel & membership badge manufacturers database?

 

Many membership badges such as the NSAD & Deutschen Christen only ever had one maker. However, many of the more common badges were contracted to several manufacturers. Lets see if we can start a database of the various makers & marks from the more common badges.

 

I do not intend to feature the Party badge as that has been done with great success on WAF, but the H.J. diamond I'm sure could be equally as interesting, along with many of the more common badges.

 

Here's how we run it:

 

Start a thread as normal, adding/posting any known maker variants as we find them. I will post the link for it here, so that it can be reached quickly for future reference.

Excellent Idea Don. My Frauenschaft collection has been growing lately so we can start to go on it whenever time and inclination permits. There are plenty of differnet makers of these. We will all be learning a lot from this. Robert :cool:

Thanks Robert, I hope that it will be a success, as you can see I've added a couple of more. I'm holding off on the Frauenschaft at the moment as I'm not sure how to tackle them, there are so many variations as well as makers. However once I've thought it through we'll do them as well.

Cheers

Don

With all the links you added on this post, it makes it easier to find all the information and great photos you posted on the WWII German badges and pins.

Thank you very much, some of the badges you posted I have never seen before:

Hi Pete,

I'm not sure whether we have a Stahlhelm thread, I'll have a look, it maybe in the Imperial section.

Cheers

Don
