  • Sale
  • $ 60

This piece is very straightforward, even basic, as tinnies go. It is a square, with the upper edge of an eagle’s wings forming the top edge of the tinnie. The event info notes simply “Kreis Day 1939”. The piece is zinc metal, with dark grey finish on the obverse face. This is thin in some spots with the dull grey zinc showing through, and a little white gritty oxidation on the bare zinc. The reverse has most of its original, thin silver wash, and is maker marked:  “M9/7 Pfoerster & Barth, Pforzheim”. The pin functions smoothly, with good tension
