Wow, first new SA tinnie in nearly 10 months

Well done Alec, nice badge.

Regards,

Pete

By the way, I am afraid I now have serious doubts about the cardboard? tinnie posted by Claymore in post 314.

Hi Pete.....

...I agree, nice to see 'new life' here on this thread......I've not seen anything worthwhile to buy in the past 10 months (at least, not for my collection)....

...and I also agree about that card tinnie of mine....when I initially bought it I did think it was in 'superb' condition for a '32 tinnie......I have two or three other 100% genuine 'card' tinnies....but this one was a bit shiny and pristine......I felt that it could be true, as there will obviously be some still surviving in such great condition....

...but in the past few months I've seen a couple of dealers selling this same card tinnie ('big' name dealers).....along with another card tinnie, named 'Bonn'....coloured green....imagine the shape of a horseshoe.......in fact, now that I think about it, there's also another SA (possibly) 'Bonn' card tinnie doing the rounds.....white coloured.......different date and lettering & artwork to the green one.....

....so, either 'someone' has found a pile of old card SA tinnies, or 'someone' is making them up ???? ...but if they are made up ('fake')....why pick this type of SA ??? ...they're not very 'special', and by 'special' I mean that the date that's used, or the location......nothing to tie in with a major event of the 3rd Reich....apart from all being pre '32......(or is that enough to be considered 'special' ?)......

....it would seem strange only to make a couple of card tinnies.......have you seen anymore 'card' tinnies for other organisations suddenly appearing....??

Regards...................

I like the program going with the badge, which looks to be in very good condition as this one always seems to go grey.

By the way this thread is for SA badges.

Onward.

Broken pin, but it will do.

I just received this tinnie and while giving it a mild cleaning I found it was maker marked which surprised me as my Stuttgart pin is not marked, the maker is Karl Wuster, Markneukirchen which am told is in Saxony.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
