Next up is BESSON GMUND. I have a 1938 May Day stamped ADOLF BESSON GMÜND, but this one dispenses with the Adolf, and the umlauts in Gmünd.

Thanks Troy,

I've been toying with the idea of collecting tinnies for a while and finally took the plunge last weekend. I picked up  a B. Haarmann and after studying yours the pin and pin attachment are identical... which can only be good :)

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.

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.

Joe

I checked with my tinnie expert and he says the last two look good to him, so count those two tinnies as legit.

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.

Hi Arthur,

It always amazes me how someone would go to the trouble to fake a $5.00 tinnie, but they do.

Hello, I have this broken tinnie. Is it a piece of junk already or still have some value?
What do you think?
On our local forum, one guy offers to me "a couple of euros". That's why I asking.

Thank you in advance.

    • 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
