Much like in the United States, Germany had both national and local bowling organizations. A Frankfurt group had these pins made to commemorate their 25th anniversary. The image in the middle is the Frankfurt Eagle, a symbol that also appears on the city’s flag and coat of arms. With a founding date of 1875, the group predates even the Deutsche Kegler- und Bowlingbund (DKB).
