World War II German tinnies are collectible items of militaria and political memorabilia, granted to Germans during the second world war (1939 – 1945). They generally take the form of small pins, fashioned from either metal or plastic.

Background

The small pins were produced by a range of different organisations and German departments during the second world war.

They were handed out to attendees of a particular rally or event, members of a group - such as the Hitler Youth - or to commemorate an anniversary, such as mothers’ day or labour day.

Many German military brigades also produced their own tinnies.

How much are World War II German tinnies worth?

The ubiquity of German tinnies has ensured that prices have remained relatively modest for collectors.

Pieces in good condition can sell for between $20 and $50 although the rarest items can achieve as much as $200.
