    Tinnies with a horse on them somewhere
  1. http://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_01_2013/post-7021-0-49321500-1358224970.pngI was beginning to wonder if I was the only one on this forum.....................One of the common tinnies I have seen and wondered if the finishes are different is the common Hannover NSDAP 1934 tag. Mine is definately a copper wash. This one looks like a bronze wash. any others???
  2. I have jumped into the Tinnie/badge(T/B) game in the last two years or so as a secondary interest. Only Third Reich era with some reference to the TR somewhere. Something I recently discovered is some were available with more than one finish. Specifically antique brass, silver wash, zinc, gold wash, copper wash, etc on metal and some plastic come in different colors. I have not seen very many examples posted showing one T/B with multiple finishes in collections. I have seen a few mentioned that were some sort of award. Just curious what all is out there.
  3. Intersting to looks at the details. His hat and belt look brand new but his uniform has badly wrinkled sleeves.
  4. With that much time in the Luft wouldn't it be interesting to know his story?
  5. has not set their status

  6. Eric, the tabs in post 79 are reproductions. They were a gift to Bill as such.

  7. Yes, when they did away with these cats they went into other branches or if qualified could be a "pinkie"engineer. I think we have a new contender for rarest Luftwaffe uniform. Nautiker with those killer boards. I wonder how many guys would have seen that set and not kept them together?

  9. I just received a set of General-Stabsingenieur tabs that look like they were made by the same hand as Bill's in post 79. Mine have a little age toning but are still in great shape. I will post soon.
  10. Order LV40 No.569 10 May, 1940 change secondary color from golden yellow to lemon yellow. Branch color dark green. Order LV41 No. 1562 8 Oct, 1941 change branch color to pink and secondary color to light blue.
  11. Another small piece of the puzzle solved. Relating to discussions on what ranks were possible for a General Staff Officer. Gary quotes something in one of the Angolia books in an earlier post. To summarize Hauptmann through Oberst but there has been debate on Hauptmann. While looking for something else I just found another quote in Angolia Vol 1 bottom of page 159. <General Staff Corps Officers of the ranks Captain to Colonel(line officers only)while on duty with the General Staff or in duty positions accorded to general staff >..........yada yada... In short this is the second different mention of Hauptmann rank in the general staff. I no longer have doubts about the tabs I just received from Gary9 and posted in this thread. They are without doubt Carmine. I will post eventually.
