“Tinnies is the generic name for small commemorative pins and badges. While the name implies these badges are made of tin, that is not always the case. The designers used all available materials: metal, wood, porcelain, clay, cloth, leather, and paper. Tinnies (Tagungsabzeichen), or Day Badges, commemorating an event have been around for as long as organizers have felt a need to give or sell a remembrance of their event.”

Over 300 pages with more than 2,000 German tinnies divided into 29 chapters. (The total number of tinnies shown for both Volumes I and II is over 5,000.) The text of each tinnie is shown in German and English and the value is shown in US Dollars. Also included are sections on oxidized tinnie restoration, tinnie distribution by years, fake and reproductions, and tinnie similarity.
