Product Description:This is a rare and very early NSDAP Membership Pin. This attractive piece predates the RZM system. It’s made of Tombak, and shows pleasant, honest age and use. On the front, the metal shows as bare brassy Tombak with an old patina. The high quality enamel is beautiful, with great color and no damage beyond normal light surface scratches. The reverse of this early NSDAP Membership Pin is marked with the early type “Ges. Gesch.” indicating a legally protected design. The attachment pin appears to be brass and is complete and functional. It’s held in place with a neatly soldered brass pin plate. There are no repairs. This badge presents as an all-original piece with an undisturbed patina and a great look. These are much harder to find than the later RZM period pieces. The condition rates as excellent.
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.
