Product Description: This lot of unused ribbon bar ribbon for NSDAP Long Service Awards is a very interesting and likely unique grouping. Each ribbon is a full 10 meters long, which would have been enough to make hundreds of ribbon bars. There are a total of four ribbons: one brown and white for the 10 year NSDAP Long Service medal, two blue and white ribbons in different widths for the 15 year award, and one red, brown and white ribbon for the 25 year award. Each ribbon bundle is rolled up just as it was when it was made, and is complete with the original factory wrapping, with three of the ribbons in paper bands and one wrapped in string, with the original paper label. Two of the paper wrappings are stamped with “10 mtr.” in purple ink, indicating the length. This set of miniature ribbons for NSDAP Long Service Awards is a very appealing example of political regalia as it was made, still in original configuration since before 1945. The condition is near mint, with only extremely slight age toning, and no damage.
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.
