GOLDEN PARTY BADGES

(MC313) A Nice example of an Early Rare Golden Party Badge to party member Emmy Pulz. The number is 461 and the party badge is the small 25 mm Fuess type. The badge has no enamel damage and is in nice, clean condition with good gilt. The badge has the retaining clip to the reverse, with the maker's name embossed to the pin plate, with the numbers 461 engraved into it. With this comes some photocopied letters relating this female and her party number. It says she joined the NSDAP party on the 2/04/1925 and that she was born in 1886. She was a member of other German organisations. There is a copy of her Munich party card, showing her picture and this also shows the death rune and has a cross through it, denoting she died. I can find no date though when she did die, on the correspondence. Very rare to find identified party badges to such an early member of the party. She must have known some of the major figures in the party and this is a nice historical badge with supporting paperwork. Well worthy of further research. GBP £1750.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS811) A Nice German NSDAP 30 mm Party Badge having had a factory conversion pin fixing. The badge has had some enamel damage to it, on the white enamel around the edge, but nothing too serious. The reverse is numbered 6933 and is unresearched, though the actual badge itself is shown in the book "For Fuhrer and Fatherland, Political & Civil Award of the Third Reich" by LTC John R Angolia on page 393, where it is attributed to the Michael Xilas museum collection. Other than this, no research has been done on the badge. Very nice to find a documented, featured badge from one of the highly esteemed publications from the late 1980's. GBP £1750.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS824) A Grouping of NSDAP Party Badges to a husband and wife. The party badges are of nice low issue numbers, being 1401, 1402 and consists of a 25 mm party badge for 1401 which is the Feuss type and marked as such on the back plate of the retaining pin. The badge to the front shows wear and tear, with some chipping to the enamel, specifically to the red enamel around the letters of NA of the national part of the slogan. Then we have the next 25 mm badge which is an unmarked Deschler. This again has enamel damage, again to the red enamel, as well as the white enamel, as can be seen from the scan. The badge is complete with its original pin fixing. Finally, the large size party badge that has had a replacement pin fixing to the reverse. Surprisingly, the front enamel on this example in in good condition with no major chips, dings or scratches. With this trio, comes a little bit of research, showing that the party badges belonged to Helene and Richard Walther. Richard was the Burgemeister of the town of Ilmenau in Thuringen and was apparently on the run when the town was occupied by the allied forces as it was a town that had camps holding foreign slave labourers, to which he would have been party to. There are also copies of his party registration card, a picture of his wife of 1934 and a copy of her party registration also. There are also some letters and correspondence. The group is worthy of further research. This couple were obviously very early supporters of Hitler and his party regime, joining the party in 1925, with both of them joining on 6/4/25. Becoming increasingly hard to find now early NSDAP badges especially to a high profile couple, such as Mr and Mrs Walther. GBP £3250.00 (UK Pounds)

(P420) A Golden Party Badge that appears to be a metal detector find. The badge has the number 53269 engraved into the reverse. It has also had a period pin repair to the reverse. The front has had some enamel damage as can be seen. As it has been recovered, it is not in the best of conditions. Having said this, the number has been researched and I have copied his relevant entry. It has also been stated this man was in the SS, but I have not been able to confirm this. The badge is the larger size and could do with sympathetic cleaning. Priced for condition.
GBP £795.00 (UK Pounds)

GAU BADGES

(R300) A nice example of the pre-blood Order Gau Munich Badge that has around the edge the motto Und ihr habt doch gesiegt 1933. The badge although unmarked, is probably a Deschler made example and has a nice bronze over a copper coating. Given to those members of the party who took part in the Munchen Punch, this was the badge they wore before the blood order came into existence. GBP £199.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS418) A Gau Essan Day Badge by the maker Hoffstatter Bonn. The badge is in gilt metal although this has peeled to the lower portion of the badge. Nice to find. This badge is often stated to be a Gau badge GBP £125.00 (UK Pounds)

(L422) An NSDAP Reichspartag 1933 Day Badge showing an eagle holding a swastika over Nuremburg castle. To the base, it has the letters NSDAP Reichspartag Nurnberg 1933.

A nice historical badge.

GAU DECORATIONS OF HITLERíS GERMANY

Using history as a backdrop, author Craig Gottlieb offers a study of Gau Ehrenzeichen, or the Nazis' District Honour Badges. Although useful both as the first-ever collector's manual devoted exclusively to the subject, this study can also help historians understand the formative years of the Nazi party between 1923 and 1939. Drawing on his knowledge not only of the artifacts themselves, but on a keen understanding of the period, Gottlieb offers a unique view into the pre-war history of Nazi Germany. Using previously unpublished photos, and drawing on private archives of original specimens of every badge and corresponding award document, Gottlieb answers two questions: what is a Gau Ehrenzeichen, and why were they relevant in understanding Hitler's rise to power?
