German Tinnie for 1933 Communist Games - 1933
Rare German tinnie for the 1933 Weltspartakiade Moskau games which was a communist worker's version of the Olympics. The name itself was a reference to Spartacus who was considered to represent the proletariat influence in Rome.Really a bunch of hogwash but this pin is interesting because this was after the Nazi rise to power when such Communist activities were verboten. Even more interesting, the pin is GES GESCH marked so it was made in Germany. German Communist items from this time period are quite scarce. I will be listing the last three German Communist pins I recently bought out of a very interesting collection.
