Title Liberation of the Saarland 'tinnie'
Nationality German
Period 1934
Price £25.00

This commemorates the moment when Adolf Hitler ordered his troops to occupy the Saarland, hitherto under French control. The French army offered no resistance and, to compound matters, meekly packed up and left, offering the Reich its first bloodless victory!

4cm across, it is a piece of die-struck tin. The original wash may have been a gilt finish, which has worn off. There is a little minor surface rust to the back of the badge, with the odd crease to the front.

testimonials

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.
