Nice to see one that is not made of zinc! A May Day Tinnie 1938 by Richard Sieper & Söhne of Lüdenscheid! These National Labor Day / May Day tinnies commemorate the public holiday devoted to the German working class, on the 1st of May every year. It is constructed out of an injection molded bakelite base that has been silver washed. The round shaped obverse features a man and a woman dancing with an umbrella above a national eagle (with outstretched wings clutching a wreathed swastika in its talons) and “1. Mai 1938”. The reverse is maker marked and has an oxidized steel, well working, melted on pin. It measures approximately 1 3/8 inches in diameter. Rare to find a non-zinc example! Collect all the dates!
