    WW2 German stickpins

    Included in the most recent find were these two stickpins. Tons of info on the intrawebs about the assorted badges and tinnies and such. Only saw one ebay listing for the bomb design but no details. Anybody have a source of info on these "awards"?

    'Winterhilfswerke' (WHW) Tinnies (Spendenabzeichen). from the series 'Geschosse und Munition'. This street collection (Reichsstra├čensammlung) was held on 2/3 November 1940.

    A quick search of Winterhilfswerke lead to numerous sites selling these tinnies. Of note, there were very few listings for the ordnance type pins. Most were of the "political" persuasion. I'll hang on to these two, hope to find the others and have a real collection.
