No idea Robert.....interesting stickpin.  One more 3rd Reich organization!  Thanks for showing.  Wonder if Don would know?  He probably has a picture of someone wearing it!

Well thanks for your thoughts gents.  It would make sense to me that it is period as that fantasy badge would be more often encountered.  Perhaps a female Beamten?  I know a shot in the dark but this is what makes this fun!  Have a good week the both of you.

Perhaps Joe but still looking for answers.  The first time seen ones are especially tough since it cant be dismissed as a fantasy without seeing others yet cannot confirm either.  So I bring it out every so often.  I'm thinking along the lines of Pete as regards possibly Germans outside of Germany type pin.  I forget now where I had gotten it from.

Another addition to this interesting thread: according to Hüsken a Wirtschaftsgruppe Bauindustrie in der Reichgruppe Industrie 1. model. Comments are appreciated :)

  • My comment is well done and what a design combination!  Would this then be for a food processor.  Agribusiness?  I've never seen this before.  Thank You

Hi Robert,

Freely translated this pin reads Economygroup Buildingindustry of the Stategroup Industry (wow). The 2nd version is also illustrated in Hüsken's book "Abzeichen deutscher Organisationen".

That is a good looking pin. :) Does Hüsken suggest a time period of use?

I wonder what the algiz (life) rune is meant to represent. Protection/defence, health, birth or Z?

Thanks for showing it Peter.

Hi Joe, 

Long time no hear. Unfortunately there is no reference to a time-period. I think the protection/defence aspect seems plausible, the design resembles a house (bau), which is perfect for the above. With respect for the copyright I choose to illustrate the 2nd version with a rough drawing (Rembrandt would turn in his grave!).

Hmmmm, I prefer the 1st version. Can't see why they chose to revise some of the organisation badges that they did.

Always amazed by the number of pieces I have not seen before.

  • Maybe home builders then?  And also maybe someone can peek at the maker of this stickpin.  I can only make out Danner on the first line and Thur. below but not the first initial to Danner or the town or city in what I suspect would be Thuringia.  Thank You

PS and on a side note I happened to find this in the parking lot of one of my customers last night.  Not TR but hopefully a REAL find!

  • Joe  You are correct as I can make out an Mu..  Thank You

PS  I had just snagged this one as I had sold off my unmarked example years ago and then this one popped up and I could not resist.  This hobby/passion is impossible to give up!

Sorry for my delay in responding to this thread, I knew that I had an Urkunde for Peter's pin but couldn't find it!!!  Success at last.  It has an embossed symbol at the top which I have enlarged in case it isn't as clear on the full image.

Cheers

Hi !

99 % of the German badges with swastika shown in the Hüsken book are from my collection which André scanned several days. I received this badge with its framed award document but I had to look when it was distributed.
