And Siegfried,

I know what you mean about the lower-quality printed patches for funeral sashes. The few rondels with the insignia on them I've seen are printed, to be sewn on the sash, and are of the same shiny (rayon?) material as the sash. So I don't think the patch Koj posted is one of them.

Here's a funeral sash with a Type II insignium:

You've inspired me to start looking for that book..!
And also to think about starting that thread.

Great Items Matt & Fraulein V.!
It makes you wonder why womens stuff is not as "collectible/desired" by the masses....

FV-
Thank you for posting those pictures! That's just what I meant about printed patches on funeral sashes.

Matt-
I had already recently suggested a 'Women in the Reich' section to be created (see 'Comments and Announcements' section) because I see women's stuff is getting all scattered around other sections as the subject doesn't have one of its own. Look, even funeral sashes are getting in 'Awards and Badges'! (not to mention documents, photos, etc.) Not that I mind at all seeing all this really nice stuff, but please see what I wrote in 'Comments and Announcements'.

Snookie,
I'm with you on that. Some of the women's things are every bit as nice (and rare) as most anything else. I think it is just that there are so very few people out there who know very much about the subject--that too much titilating fantasy junk gets in the way of serious study.

Books about organisation

Post by Matt Gibbs » 25 Jul 2005 15:39

Hello followers of this thread!
Ok, just wanted to say I recieved a Kreis level badge if the later type NSF badge and will put some pics on the forum soon. It is maker marked M1/172 Walter & Henlein, Gablonz. The pin looks good, there is slight wear to the enamel of the white border but it is not chipped as such, just like a minor scrape has lifted a tiny section of the shine.

Fraulein, I have also been book hunting, see the Documents section sometime!
Regards
Matt Gibbs

You DOG!!! :lol: (Actually, you should realize that coming from me, calling you a "dog" is a very high compliment!) Seriously, you've got to tell me who your bookfinder is, to have located a copy for you so quickly!

Also, can't wait to see a picture of your latest badge!

Book Finding

Post by Matt Gibbs » 30 Jul 2005 07:37

Fraulein;
My book finder is me. :)

Actually on the '36 copy I was just lucky that someone I was already buying off had a copy! However, because I thought it would be nice to chase the history of the formation and any notable names I now also have the '39 Yearbook and the '41. :D This way I can pick through and hopefully note any changes etc.

I shall scan some of the photos and put them here next week.

Kind regards
MG

Photos

I have been ever so busy but I shall get around to these photos soon, sorry for the delay.
Anyone out there seen a Reichs level NSF badge at a fair in the UK..? I have spoken to a few people but they have not seen one recently at any events, maybe there is some out there in the US..?
Kind regards

Matt,

Thought you might also like this one, a recent acquisition, a NS Colleagues' pin, although regrettably not a great photo of it.

Nice pin

Post by Matt Gibbs » 11 Mar 2006 11:57

FV,
Yes, nice pin, I have yet to find any bordered pins with the sunwheel swastika myself ;)

You lucky dog, you! ;D

I shall post a few more over the weekend since I am home and not working for a change.

The official age for women entering the Frauenschaft was 21, but there was a very limited number of special pins made for women under that age, the NS Jung Mädchenschaft, who had worked significantly for the Organization. This is the only one of these I've ever seen; even the one in J.R. Cone's book appears to be from a photo in an Assman catalog.
Haven't been over here for a while, sorry I missed the start of this thread. I've had one of these for a while & yes they are hard to find.

Cheers
Don

Thanks Don!
Nice pic. These do not seem to come up very often for sale do they. I haven't got round to picking one up myself, I like the coloured bordered pins too much maybe! You've reminded me to post my other pics too.

Don,

Very, very, VERY nice! Thank you very much! And you too, Matt! I thought I was the only crazy person in the world!

Big, BIG kisses to you both....for the rarity of the badge, of course!
