"Tinnie" is the common term for a commemorative medal made from a non-precious metal such as zinc or tin (or even plastic) and with provisions for being attached to a garment and displayed while worn. The Nazi Government issued many different tinnies to commemorate various occasions.

Tin has a perched eagle looking left below a sun that has a swastika at center. The bottom of the tin reads “GAUTAG” in large letters with “DER NSDAP WÜRTTEMBERG HOHENZOLLERN & STUTTGART 25-27 JUNI 1937” or “GAU DAY - THE NSDAP WURTTEMBERG HOHENZOLLERN & STUTTGART” Basically the tin welcomes the three areas to the Nazi Reich on 25-27 June 1937.

The Nazi Gau (plural Gaue) system was established at a party conference on 22 May 1926 to improve administration of the party structure. From 1933 onwards, after the Nazi seizure of power, the Gaue increasingly replaced the states as administrative subdivisions in Germany.

Reverse has the original pin and maker’s mark in raised lettering “FR. ZIMMERMANN, STUTTGART.”   [ad] [ph:L]
