Gents  Ive finally found a little inside time to scan these for comparison purposes.  Here they are........  From left to right of course... Seiboth,Mayer,Poellath, and Deumer

And the reverse of course  Same sequence of makers.  Good health and fortune to all in 2018!  Robert

The darkness of the Seiboth is in the enamel work as it has no real surface substance that would cause the enhanced brown coloration.  So I am thinking  a primitive earthtone for the organization.  But I digress.  We can draw our own conclusions..........

A nice comparison Robert.. Have  you noticed the similarity between the letter S in Reichsbund on the Seiboth piece & the anniversary pieces?

Happy New Year to you & all the other members of GMIC.

Robert, thank you. Interesting how some went to the extra effort to lock the pin in place.

Happy new Year Don, Robert and all.

I also notice on the Seiboth adler the outer wings, the short  line ends squared off rather than angled like the others. Nuances. :)

No I didn't notice either of those differences on either of those pieces.  Now I have to go back under my bed and get them out and look although I believe I posted an anniversary here many moons ago.  I'll look now.

I picked a membership book for these up for a couple of Euros the other week.  I had only ever seen single sheet member cards before (see post #38) so decide to break my rule of only buying Tirol items to get it.

The bright light of the scanner has burnt out the colour of the cover which is green.  There are 16 pages containing rules & regulations etc.  Here are a couple of examples.

Cheers

Don

That's right Joe.  I keep forgetting about that one. I  allways wonder about the criteria for some of these that date all the way back to the previous century.  Would one have to prove somehow they gardened in 1886 lets say in order to qualify?  Easy maybe to BS your way to that level badge?

Don,

 Nice membership book, these memberships books from various organizations go for a couple of euro's and are often disparately looked on by collectors . But they are nevertheless terrifically hard to come across.

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
