Product Description: This 1933 NSDAP Entry Date Stripe is a very rare and desirable piece of Nazi Party insignia. This pattern of insignia was worn for only a short time in 1933 by early NSDAP members, and indicated the year in which they had joined the Party. This pattern of insignia was replaced by the brassard, and for a time was worn together with the brassard before being phased out completely. This textbook original stripe is made of a black fabric material, with horizontal ribs. The black fabric backing shows no holes, fading or damage. This black fabric strip is adorned with the year “1933,” executed in bullion wire. There are no stitch holes on the edges and no indication this piece was ever worn on a uniform. The condition of this 1933 NSDAP Entry Date Stripe is excellent. These are very tough to find.
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.
