Product Description: This 1929 NSDAP Entry Date Stripe is a tough to find piece of insignia, for an early member of the Nazi Party. This pattern of insignia was worn after 1933 by those members of the NSDAP who had joined during the “struggle time” prior to the Nazi seizure of power. This example is for someone who became an NSDAP member in 1929. This stripe is made of a black fabric with a slight sheen, woven with horizontal ribs. It’s neatly folded and stitched on the short ends. The date is emblazoned on this black strip in bullion wire. There is no wear, and no stitch holes or other indications of use; this is an unissued piece. The reverse shows the back of the embroidery. The condition of this scarce 1929 NSDAP Entry Date Stripe rates as near mint.
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.
