Hi Troy et al,

I just received a lot of 100 Mayday / Arbeit / Party Day tinnies from a dealer in Germany who was just looking to get rid of them, which is what I'll probably end up doing, when I saw your post.  I could not resist the temptation, so I pulled all the 1 Mai 1936 tinnies out of the pile and came up with more maker names to post.



Robinson Oberstein / Nahe

Deschler & Sohn Muenchen 9

Gust. Hammesfahr Sol-Wald





Three more.

Gebrueder Bald Solingen-Wald

My Biederman & Co.

My Overhof & Cie. Luedenscheid

Pleuger & Voss GMBH Luedenscheid

These two I'm not so sure of.  The first one is Hermann Bauer Schwaeb. Gmuend.  The finish on the front does not look right to me.  The second one is K. Frank Nurnberg.  The pin attachment looks strange.  It could just be a mis-strike.  Does anyone have examples of these two makers for comparison?  

If you collect the different makers of these 1936 tinnies and want more, please let me know by PM.  I have way too many.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for posting your pics. I know what you mean about the finish not looking right, I picked one up recently where the the finish just didn't seem quite right, it was almost too clean. Everything else stacked up though. I suppose depending on the exact composition and how they've been kept some just age really well.

Thanks - Arthur.

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • 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.
