All RPT tinnies have been transfered from the general database, I expected more of them :unsure:

There are some nice badges, thanks for sharing, I collect these by the different makers, problem is when I'm out and about I find it difficult to remember which makers I already have.. compounded by the fact that I collect the May 1st tinnies by maker as well.

The badges for '34 I have with a silver and bronze finish and would like to ask if anyone else has noticed variations in finish of the badges, of course often we will have silver and "Antiqued" read blackened.

Please see attached '34 badges with bronze and silver finishes, forgive me if someone replies and I don't answer for a while, I get to see a computer about once every 3 months these days, Tieste only discribes these as being "metal"

Cheers

Finally found a 1929, bronze finish. A much smaller badge than I have always imagined.

I have a rare silver award medal for special participants/honored guests of the 1929 Reichsparteitag. I've only seen this medal one other time. Anyone have some background knowledge on this item or its value? Thanks.

... another one of the 1929 badges made as a miniature for chain mounting. 800 silver.

This is a nice one. There are some silver versions floating around that have a "1000" at the bottom of the reverse. On another forum it was described as the silver content which makes on sense as there is no such thing as 1000 fine silver. I was wondering if anyone on this forum might have encountered these and have an opinion? I personally don't care for them and have my doubts.

Andechs, I don't think your cased 29 RPT plaque is original. The lettering on the obverse is wrong as well as the details of the eagle are off. On the reverse the MM is in the wrong font. Reproductions of these cased awards are being sold in the UK. These awards cased are very rare. Here's a Vet acquired one from my collection to compare.

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
