Here are two recent-ish newcomers to my hoard. Bavarian Pilot and Observer in a not often seen variant . Made by the unknown maker with the square punch MM. Observer is 935 silver marked on pin.Pilot is also silver but not marked as such. There are a few remnants of the frosting finish on the pilot badge but the burnishing is intact on the highpoints. Detail on both badges is lovely. I include a comparision picture or two with the more often seen (but still rare) Pollath examples.Ferg1

Hi Lee, yes the one you pointed out is marked KARL POLLATH. I do not know exactly how long they produced these but probably well into the 20's /30's in one form or another . Details are sketchy at best with regard to production figures and periods for these badges. This one is silver so I suspect it is early-mid war . I will try and post a picture of reverse this evening.Ferg1.

    • 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.
