Weimar republic items


Recommended Posts

Hey Graham,

great stuff but some people may not know, that these items are no official stuff from any government of the Weimarer Republic or any of the federals german state. But still they are nice pieces and each tells a story of its own.

Yes modern history researchers are asking the question, if the prohibition of orders and medals in § 109 of the constitution of Weimar was one of many reasons why people aren't loyal to the modern state and were willingly following the pied piper from the right.

So many veteran associations jumped in and brought out their own medals. But as said very intersting part of German history. I am looking forward to see more of it.

Thanks Bayern. My collection is a very small sample, there were many veterans associations that sprang up across the republic after WW1 with a variety of badges and medals, some with multiple clasps, just the Kyffhauser 1914-1918 War Veterans Commemorative Medal alone has about 76 official clasps.
