Back to famine by the looks of things......

Here's mine, also Neff.

Can't really comment on your Westmark as I can't say 100% that mines genuine.

Cheers

Don

Don, You are too humble. Seen far less than not very often. Let me see if I can very roughly translate. Would this badge be some kind of Silesian Home to National Socialism badge for 15 years? Just a rough guess w/o dictionary. Thanks for showing this Don. A maker on the reverse? Robert

Nice pins James.

Robert,

Yes it was one of those Nationalistic groups. There are a number of forms & variants of these, the reverse is totally unmarked.

Here's another I recently received, also unmarked.

Cheers

Don

Thanks. They can be hard to find at times. Here is a picture of one in wear.

Cheers

Don, This is my first glimpse at this rare badge other than in reference books. Congrats. In this instance, did you happen upon the photo first and then the badge or vice versa? That is a great way to collect. In essence, you are putting a face to the badge. I wonder how many of those were issued. Probably not too many I suspect. Thanks for showing badge and photo. Robert :cool:

Robert, now it's my turn to be impressed.......... a Reichverband deutscher Fleischbeschauer-und Trichinenschauer-Verb?nde pin, very nice. I assume unmarked?

I'd had the picture for quite sometime before the pin arrived quite unexpectedly through the post from a good friend of mine who thought I'd like one....... :beer:

Cheers

Don

Don, That had to be a pleasant suprise to find the badge to match the photo. Would the back of the photo have any writing on it? And before I forget and have to post again. The reverse. Have a nice weekend.

Slightly off topic and not an organizational badge, I thought I would post this to compliment James' fine minature party badge. Robert

Oi! Who let that red spy in......... :P

Nice pin Peter, not to my taste, but nice :beer:

Like the RAD pin Robert. I recently came across a picture of one of these being worn by a young soldier, haven't managed to secure it yet..... :rolleyes:

Cheers

Robert, I can't argue with that :lol:

Don, I didn't think it was worth opening a new thread for this little spy, but instead of letting it fall into oblivion, I decided to post it here. The details on the rope are quite amazing.

Peter,

It never ceases to amaze me just how skilled the people who made the dies for these must have been. We take this sort of thing for granted nowdays with modern machines & cutters, but 70 years ago it was all done by hand.

Cheers

Don
