Product Description: This Early NSDAP Membership Pin M1/159 is a nice textbook original example. It probably dates from the 1930s, and is made of Tombak or a similar brass alloy. The finish to the exposed metalwork, on both sides, is mostly lost to time and wear. The exposed base metal has taken on a typical age patina. The enamel on the front is nearly perfect, with no chips or cracks, and no major scratches. The translucent red enamel reveals the pebbled pattern that surrounds the lettering. The reverse of this Early NSDAP Membership Pin M1/159 has a soldered pin plate, and a pin that is complete and functional. It is marked with the circular “RZM” logo of the Reichszeugmeisterei and the maker NSDAP Membership Pin M1/159 – Hans Doppler. This Early NSDAP Membership Pin M1/159 is very attractive and in excellent plus 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.
