Olympic 1936 Tinnie - Adlerschiessen - (Eagle Target Shooting)

Recommended Posts

Couple of weeks ago picked up this Large (3.5cm x 5.3cm) metal tinnie connected with 1936 Olympic Adlerschiessen. At the time I was at a loss as to what exactly Adlerschiessen was ? Spoke today to a friend, a hobby shooter - apparently there's a shooting disciple in Germany using a rifle and small calibre bullets 4,5mm - shooting at (instead of a round target) a spread black eagle target trying to shoot the wings or legs off the target (included is a picture). I ask members have they seen this tinnie before or know anything about this Olympic discipline ? any relevant info welcome.

Hi Alec,

Very nice tinnie. I've seen them a few times over the years but have no more info on them or the events I'm afraid as they are outside of my area of interest.

Thanks for showing it.

Don

Well Don - its a comfort, at least you've seen them before - I couldn't find another one anywhere in the internet, military forums or in my Tieste catalogue. Thanks

It might be a regional shooting tinnie. I also own some medals which have a relation to the olympic games.
