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.

    • 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.
