Product Description: This 10 Year NSDAP Membership Medal is a nice, representative example of this scarce and desirable Nazi Party award. This medal is the earlier variant known to collectors as the “thin version.” It is made of bronzed zinc. The obverse shows some wear, which exposes bare zinc at the high points. The recesses retain original bronze finish. The reverse of the medal shows nice finish, with an appealing range of bronze tones. There is a light patina throughout. The medal retains its original suspension ring, which is unmarked. This 10 Year NSDAP Membership Medal is complete with its correct original brown and white ribbon. The silky ribbon is nice and clean, with full original color, and no damage to note. This attractive political award remains in excellent condition.
Historical Description: Adolf Hitler was an army veteran in 1919. Frustrated by Germany’s defeat in World War I, he joined a new political organization called the German Workers’ Party. The organization was founded earlier that same year and promoted German nationalism. Members of this organization felt that the Treaty of Versailles was extremely unjust to Germany, by burdening it with reparations it could never pay. Hitler became the leader of this party in 1921 and changed the name to The National Socialist German Workers’ Party; Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP). In 1933, Hitler became chancellor of Germany and his Nazi government soon assumed dictatorial powers. After Germany’s defeat in World War II the Nazi party was outlawed.
