more hard to find ones
and the final batch for now
Nice. Rich A. in Pa.
Wow. That is one amazing collection Skipper!
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 .
Great. thanx Skipper. I was wondering what they were originally for when I bought them ca 2005.
More found on the internet (taken from ebay.de)
Wow! So many! Congrats Skipper!
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.
I love this one with the Mädel and her collecting box . she has just sold a few tinnies to this Police officer who is proudly pinning them on his coat.
and a propaganda poster as well as a collecting piggy box printed on a postcard.
These are my latest finds ! They include flags, tools, glass tinnies with Reich border cities cathedrals and much more.
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.
In great shape still. The collector keeper sure took care of these. Surprise...
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.......
