Original German WWII Early NSDAP Party Enamel Membership Badge Pin
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice original German WWII Era NSDAP (NSDAP) Party Enameled Badge Pin, made before the RZM numbering system was put into place in late 1934. The back has the following manufacturer information:
The "GES. GESCH." is short for Gesetzlich Geschützt (Protected By Law), indicating that the pin was a trademarked design. There is however no maker mark or contract number, so this was made sometime pre-1934, or possibly just as the system was being enacted.
The NSDAP, Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, (National Socialist German Worker’s Party), was originally founded in Munich as the DAP, Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, (German Worker’s Party), on January 5TH 1919. When Adolf AH joined the DAP in the autumn of 1919 he was to reform what was basically a debating society into an active political party. Appointed as the first chairman of the party on July 29TH 1921 AH was to restructure it along para-military lines in a hierarchy of four levels of government.
This example is a standard issue membership badge, awarded to all personnel on acceptance as an official party member. It is a 24mm diameter, die struck zinc alloy NSDAP membership badge with multi-colored enamel work. The badge features a translucent red, circular outer border with embossed silvered script, NATIONAL-SOZIALSTISCHE-D.A.P., encompassing a white enamel field with canted black enamel Swas (swas). In very good condition, the plating is however completely worn away. Overall very good condition enamel with only a bit of light scratching, and the back has a very nice "safety pin" style attachment, which would work on any type of clothing.
