Third Reich Tinnie Collecting Book Now Available

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

After two years of work, our latest book 'Third Reich Tinnie Collecting', is finally available.  This is the third book in our series of "little" Third Reich collectables after "Winterhilfswerk Street/House Collections & More - A Collector's Guide', and 'Donation Badges, Pins & Pendants of the Third Reich'.

The Tinnie book is 8.5 by 11 inches and has over 3,000 tinnies on 410 pages in 29 chapters sorted by organization or event.  The photos of the tinnies are in color, perhaps making it the first large English language Tinnie book in color.  Each Tinnie's photo is accompanied by a transcription of the text in German and the translation in English.  Again, this also may be a first for a Tinnie book.  Also included are values in US Dollars. 

The book comes in two versions, a Wire-O bound version available immediately, and a hard cover version available in about four weeks.  The lengthy hard cover bookbinding process is the reason for the delayed release of that version.  Please go to our web site at www.winterhilfswerk.com for details on pricing.

We would like to give special thanks to those GMIC members who helped with the book by contributing photos from their collections.  We could not have come up with such a successful book without your help.  I've attached a few sample pages to whet your appetite.  Thanks very much.

The pages in the book are much clearer than shown below.  :o)

Hi John,

I agree with you completely as far as selling very many books to European collectors.  The base price for the hardcover book is $84.95.  The $44.00 difference between the $84.95 and the web store price of $128.95 is mostly the outrageous shipping cost charged by the US Postal Service from the US to Europe.  The packaging costs added to the USPS postage cost is minimal.  Shipping to the US is only $7.00 because the USPS offers Media Mail (book rate) within the country.  We always figured International sales would be a problem.  We looked into multiple shipping options and could not find anything cheaper.  The base price of the Wire-O bound version is $74.95, but again the shipping costs to Europe are ridiculous.  Sorry about that.

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • 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
