Benten Very nice Thuringen you have there. They are hard to find in that condition. Here is one of my favorites.....Hj Aufmarsch Hamburghein Godenwind. I have seen these with the diamond in enamel. A rare bird. Let us try to bring this thread back from life support. You show one and I will show one. Robert :beer:

Hi Robert,

Thank you for the complement.

Your tinnie is one of my favorite tinnies. I have never seen these with the diamond in enamel. Your tinnie is about the inauguration of "The Hein Godenwind". It was a HJ Youth hostel (HJ training vacation perhaps too)- sail ship.

You made a nice and symphathetic suggestion, Robert, but I like to post tinnies some times and I will feel free in doing this now and then :beer: I will post more tinnies here .

I am interested to see more of your tinnies, so we can see our tinnies here .

If I find it I post a picture of the Hein Godenwind sailship itselve later on.I looked for it now, but I have to search on.

Cheers,

Benten

Wanted to let you know I appreciate being allowed to see the items being posted from collections.

I would contribute, however I believe all that I possess have been shown some where within the pages.

Current tinnie prices tend to keep me from any further purchases. :unsure:

Please keep showing these most interesting items and know that your efforts are appreciated.

If and when I do obtain a new item I will be sure to share.

Benten I like that postcard. Is there any writing on the back? And Joe, I hear what your saying. Believe it or not I have seen this one sold from 100 to 150 dollard in the recent past. At times it makes me want to start to cash in my chips. Feldernhalle fever?

Joe, thanks for your kind words. I hope you will find tinnies to post here. :beer:

Robert , I have only a front picture of the postcard. I don't own it.

Your HJ tinnie 1923-1933 is very nice. It commemorates the Hitler Putsch in 1923. According the Axis forum there were no nazi youngsters ( Jungbund ) involved directly in the Putsch. The HJ as an institution was established later in 1926. The slogan on your tinnie is a very good example of nazi propaganda. :beer:

Here a nice link about the HJ history; http://www.axishistory.com/index.php?id=3001

Cheers,

Robert, this nice tinnie shows the bronze griffon statue of Karlsruhe. It is located in front of the Grenadiersgeba?de ( Garrison building). This is a very old building with large ground surface around that was in military use , long before the Nazis used it in 1936 for their 109th infantry regiment. I'm still looking for a tinnie with this Griffon. There exist more tinnies a with different design .

Here a picture of the building and Griffonstatue.[attachmentid=58026]

Deutsche Jugendherberge a nice badge. I presume the text is “Jugendburg, Youth castle, Staleck”.The S in difficult to see. It was and still is one of the nicest youth hostels in Germany about 50km south from Koblenz near the river Rine.

Cheers,

Benten

Here a picture ..........nice to recognize that the right side of the building here is depicted on your tinnie.

Hi Robert, I've twiddled with the picture a bit to get it lighter, it dosn't show up as much in hand, its just a darker patch of whatever they put on it to err... darken it.

Regards,

Pete

Another new one to the fold. In this case the dark area has been polished and the scan makes it come out black.

Newly aquired. Not strictly a tinnie, but I thought that you would like it Don!

Now to find the other two. Not a painted diamond but enamelled. It just hasn't come out right in this pic.

    • 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.
