Hi Greg,

 

Thanks for posting your badge. As I expected a nice fine original, just unissued (I haven't seen any evidence that they have been copied yet but I do like to check just in case :P ). All of these are hard to find & quite rare, issued pieces are doubly hard to locate.......

 

Here are a few that I've been lucky to find recently. All of these were issued (to different contestants).

I'm sorry to say that #45 in 1943 wasn't issued either. For some reason none of the 8 numbers between #37 & #47 were awarded that year.

In fact looking at the early double figure numbers for all the years (1941-1944), quite a number do not seem to have been issued for some unknown reason.......

Sorry

Don

Through a trade deal, I have acquired my first example. Allow me to get my loop. :rolleyes: It's that small I can not read the writing on the front. :unsure: Meistersch?tze 1943.

Non magnetic zinc/alloy base metal. Brass pin and pin plate.

Obverse,

Reverse,

A nice find indeed Joe. These lapel versions of the larger numbered Meistersch?tze badges are almost as dificult to find as their big brothers.

As you can see by the pin, these were also originally gold in colour, but due to the base metel used are rarely found with their finish still intact.

Thanks for showing it.

Cheers

Don

Thanks Don. In these so many years of collecting this is the first Tirol example that has surfaced localy to my knowledge.

Should my funds improve I may have to actively search out a couple of enameled examples. :)

Some added info. The badge measures 23mm. and is magnetic, the pin is not and I doubt the pin retaining plate is but I can not tell. The detail is present beneath the enamel, scanner did not pick it up.

Hi Don, I have a chance at aquiring this badge. Can the number on this one be traced to an individual, if not, was it at least issued?Regards,Pete

Hi Pete,

Just a quick double check as the pic is a little small on my screen, is the year 1941?

If so, yes it was awarded to Hans Lenz from Innsbruck. He took part in all the shoots 1941 - '44, & was also awarded the 3 year Gaumeisterschütze badge & the 4 year spange.

A nice find, well done.

Cheers

Finally mine! (Which I promised a long time ago)

I have been collecting these for two years though not too actively. If there are some doubles those are my "trade"-pieces.

What cant see I need ;)

If one needs any detailed information on any of the ones on picture let me know.

Jani,

I thought that you may enjoy seeing my mini 3 year Gaumiester badge with the very rare mini 4 year clasp.....

The full size clasps are tough to find, but the mini.....

Cheers

Don

    • 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.
