What is this pin? WHW Gau pin or something else?

Postby Zinnie » Thu Mar 10, 2016 8:06 am

This was sent to me from a friend in The Netherlands who is a collectible dealer. He thinks it might be a WHW Gau pin or from some other German donation organization. It is made of wood and is approximately 48 mm in length. Does anyone know what this is? Any ideas, hunches, or leads would be helpful. Thanks!

Hello there!

Sorry for the late reply...I have been very busy with 'real life' issues. I do not believe that this is an actual 1933-1945 WHW piece. It is possible that it is from a collection drive that was held post 1945. You will often find some of these pieces mixed into WHW lots.

Thanks for posting here...I am hoping to get this place a little more active over time. :mrgreen:

Thank you for the information. I thought maybe it was related to S-boats since they have a patch with a penguin. I appreciate your review.
