And very nice too Chris, thanks for sharing. The 1919 does turn up occasionally however I've never seen an 18 offered for sale yet.....

Here's a group that was recently offered for sale (still no 18).

Any chance of a shot of the frame above the Stahlhelm?

Cheers

Don

I think it was Relics of the Reich, but I'm not 100% sure. No idea what the price was or who got them I'm afraid. Not an item I considered buying, I just kept the image for reference, sorry.

Thanks for the other shot, if you get time perhaps you could post some detailed shots of a couple of them in their respective threads here http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=10095 to help our database, doesn't matter if the manufacturer is already present. Just follow the links next to the image required.

Cheers

I remember seeing the Stahlhelm badges for sale also but it's been a few years back and memory fades. Will keep my eyes open for the requested dates.

Chris Clark, nice wall! :jumping:

The RAD honour pin (5th. from the right in the top row) appears to match my example.

At least it looks like it may have a rounded shovel tip. I would certainly appreciate seeing a close up of it if possible obverse and reverse. :)

These Stahlhelm badges are one of my faves, and it is great to see such a nice set (as complete as most will ever be) of these badges. I hope you find the 1918 and 1919 and I will keep an eye out for you as well. Thought I saw a 1919 somewhere so if I remember where I saw it I will get back to you.

Cheers,

Pat

Great collections!!! Did the Stalhelm organization even have a 1918 pin? They would have only had a month and 20 days to get an organization up and running... I would not think that they would have started making the pins for that year?

Guys,

An old thread but this was the most relavent place to post after searching I think.

A modern badge struck in my birth year so its 46 years old and the frauenbund badge I thought I had lost it in the hoover, turns out I was in a box!

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
