Next up is BESSON GMUND. I have a 1938 May Day stamped ADOLF BESSON GMÜND, but this one dispenses with the Adolf, and the umlauts in Gmünd.

Thanks Troy,

I've been toying with the idea of collecting tinnies for a while and finally took the plunge last weekend. I picked up  a B. Haarmann and after studying yours the pin and pin attachment are identical... which can only be good :)

Hi Troy et al,

I just received a lot of 100 Mayday / Arbeit / Party Day tinnies from a dealer in Germany who was just looking to get rid of them, which is what I'll probably end up doing, when I saw your post.  I could not resist the temptation, so I pulled all the 1 Mai 1936 tinnies out of the pile and came up with more maker names to post.

These two I'm not so sure of.  The first one is Hermann Bauer Schwaeb. Gmuend.  The finish on the front does not look right to me.  The second one is K. Frank Nurnberg.  The pin attachment looks strange.  It could just be a mis-strike.  Does anyone have examples of these two makers for comparison?  

If you collect the different makers of these 1936 tinnies and want more, please let me know by PM.  I have way too many.

Joe

I checked with my tinnie expert and he says the last two look good to him, so count those two tinnies as legit.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for posting your pics. I know what you mean about the finish not looking right, I picked one up recently where the the finish just didn't seem quite right, it was almost too clean. Everything else stacked up though. I suppose depending on the exact composition and how they've been kept some just age really well.

Thanks - Arthur.

Hi Arthur,

It always amazes me how someone would go to the trouble to fake a $5.00 tinnie, but they do.
