Well Mametz,

These two were at the MCM, as was I. Though as my car has been stolen, I am constained in time, as to when my lift wishes to arrive and leave.

I also picked up a first pattern Braunschweig SA for a steal.

Regards,

Pete

Note, the dealer with the HJ tinnies was using Tieste as a priceguide, so they were not over the top, even before the trade.

My main contact at the moment is an 70 year old ex-collector in Germany who is liquidating his collection, I get offered the stuff that has the dreaded swastika, as he can't ebay them.

Hitler Youth Ski Team Competition Badge.

Bought this badge earlier this year - measures 3,8cm x 4,5cm

Multi- piece construction, the outer border reads "Mannschaftslauf 1935-36-Nesselwang-Bayern" with green enamel. The skis are attached with 4 hollow rivets and as the HJ diamond in the center of the edelweiss.

I'm sorry to say that the enamel "Nesselwang" is considered by most enamel collectors to be a fake based on a very similar design, "all metal" tinnie, see here for an original http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/showthread.php?t=443963&highlight=nesselwang

The enamel versions appeared in the 1970's around the same time as the DRK sisters badges with the coloured borders, the DRK alpine rescue badge & the various NSFK enamel fakes.

Sorry :blush:

I don't blame you for not coming mate, a dreary wet day. Entry is now £4! I found one swastikerless cloth tinnie.

Oh, I also bought a copy of Gordens new book on Naval badges.

85% of my new stuff is from germany, 10% from America, 5% here.

I see Chris (the polisher) will be selling his collection over on WA, that will be interesting, as he has some wild ideas on pricing.

Pete

    • 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.
