    Noticed those glass "heads". Wonder if these are tinnies as well?

    They certainly are. See picture S15 with the Bismarck one .

    I have now spotted a guy who is selling most interesting original sales receipts of tinnies village by village (Mulhouse area ) . This says how much they were sold for and how many were sold . This would allow for instance to find out a percentage of population who bought these. If I can buy them I will scan the documents here too .

    I wish I had those in my collection kai, but these ones are not mine . They are nonetheless spectacular and were spotted by my son while he was browsing the net for WHW.

    Wow! excellent collection.

    Skipper, do you get these from the local "markets" or elsewhere? Great items!

    These came from a local flea market, but I believe the dealer bought them at an action near Paris, because one medal still had a label with identification from a famous auction house. They probably stem from an old collection.

    The seller had many more, including party days and WHW booklets as well as a couple of WW1 Pickelhelmets but my budget could not match his demands for the rest, So I took the pegs, some of the tinnies, and the Afrika medal.

    keep watching this thread. Yesterday I won an auction with many more WHW, but in fact the seller had even moretinies which he could not sell there because of the symbols. So he sent me a mail with pictures and I made an offer which was accepted . The package should arrive soon.......
