Historical Description: The NSDAP Membership Badge (Parteiabzeichen) was worn by all members of the Nazi Party, on the lapel of civilian clothes, or in some cases on uniforms. The origins of the badge date back to the early days of the NSDAP, and there is much variation among the earliest examples, though this was soon standardized into the form of an enamel pin featuring a black swastika on a white roundel, surrounded by the inscription “National-Sozialistische D.A.P.,” the official name of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, within a red enamel border. Beginning in 1934, manufacture of the NSDAP membership pins was controlled by the Reichszeugmeisterei, and the reverses of the badges were marked with the RZM logo and maker codes. At some point after the outbreak of WWII, the manufacture of the fine enamel membership pins ceased, and pins were made of silver finished zinc, with painted rather than enameled decoration. Most NSDAP enamel pins had a soldered pin on the reverse, though they were also available with a flat round fitting that allowed the badge to be worn in a buttonhole. Because so many Germans were members of the NSDAP, millions of these pins were made, though some rare variants and early types are hard to find. Even the most common examples are popular among collectors, because of the historical value as well as the iconic, striking design.
