As requested post your Arbeits Dank pins here, lets see how many makers we can find. For now we'll have both red & yellow versions, if needed I will split later.

To start, here's one of mine, maker marked ESP.

Cheers

My example has a rather unusual maker's mark. Any one have a clue? Don, who does your MM represent? Robert

PS I have a stick-pin version as well. I will wait to see all of the pinbacks first before I post it.

Joe Your nice example seems to match the one in Nick's group. I wonder if Aurich is the only maker to use their markings in the attaching plate? Thanks for showing. Notice the distinctive pebbling on yours. Merry Christmas Robert

Robert, thank you. It is a close match, a different pin was used but they appear to have used what was available at the moment of assembly. I wish my scanner picked up depth better.

Hopefully we will see more examples.

I can not make out your maker mark, can you sketch it?

E.S.P. could well be EUGEN SCHMIDTHAUSSIER, PFORZHEIM.

P.&.L. could be PETZ u LORENZ.

Regards and Merry Christmas all!

Joe

Joe The maker logo appears to me to be an S with an O intertwined in the middle of the S. I recognize it but I have to search thru my other stuff to find another matching logo. Talk later. Robert

Gents I thought I would add a stick-pin version of this badge. As you can see there is only ges.gesch. on the reverse. Are any members having an example with the RAD triangle and/or maker's name or logo? Have a Good Day. Robert

Another nice pin. I wonder whether these fell outside of the RAD license &/or organisation, as I do not recall ever seeing one with the triangle...

Cheers

That is a good question Don. There is one of these at another forum for sale at this time by a notoriously slow seller/shipper with only ges.gesch. marking but below where the needle attaches. Lets hope to hear from others. :unsure:

Alexey, can you tell us who the maker is on the bottom of the painted/lacquered badge above?

Cheers

My pair, this one with a creamy white background, just marked ges.gesch. Unfortunatly my rubbish scanner does not show the creamy white colour.

Wood, the last one you show looks much like the H. Aurich marked ones.

Hello all,

Sorry for opening this thread again after more than a year, I don't think I had seen it before. In any case here's a picture of my Arbeit Danks pin. And Joe with out knowing it you identified the maker of my pin. As you can see the name is partially obscured by the pin & I wasn't ever really sure who the maker was until I saw your pin. "Scheideanstalt Oberstein. Thanks for that.

Bill,

Do not apologise for opening old threads, they are here to be added to.

Nice piece you have there, & glad to read that you've solved a mystery.

Cheers

Don
