NSDAPMEDALS #42809C Pair of Matching Golden Party Badges Belonging to SD Brigadefhrer
This set of Party Badges consists of the smaller, 24mm badge as well as the large 30mm badge. Both of these badges have good enamel, showing some very mild period wear but completely free of problems or defects. There is also some minor wear to the oak leaves and the gilding on both badges.
The reverse of the small badge has a standard safety pin catch and is marked "Jos. Fuess Mnchen". The Party number is also clearly visible, "90851". The larger badge has a similar safety pin and is marked "Deschler & Sohne Mnchen 9", as well as the Party number "90851".
These badges have been recently researched and are accompanied with a full dossier. They were given to Wilhelm Freise, a long time SS member who rose to the rank of Brigadefhrer in 1945. He was born on 7 March, 1898, and his SS number was 83 650. Friese was assigned to the SD in 1936, and SS records from 1938 show Friese as a Hauptsturmfhrer. As of November of 1944 Freise is listed as a Sturmbahnfhrer attached to the notorious Race & Resettlement office.
I'm just jumping around the hefty 30 page dossier here but you can see this man had a long career within the Party, serving as everything from a machinist to a member of the staff at the Brown House. The dossier includes copies of original photographs but they are a little on the dark side. In any event these badges come with a wealth of information regarding the original owner that will reward carefully study, especially if you are keen to practice your German.
A simply amazing matched pair of badges here, with a treasure trove of history waiting to be fully explored.

NSDAPMEDALS #40532 Small Golden Party Badge
This Golden Party Badge is the smaller version. It has good oak leaves that run around the rim, with the so-called "railroad track" look to them. The gilding has been worn off the high areas of leaves, but not too badly.
The enamel portion of the badge is in completely intact and shows only a little age if you look at under magnification. The full name of the party, "Nationalsozialistische D.A.P.", rings the circumference of the badge in block lettering. The center of the badge has the usual white enamel field and black enamel swastika.
The reverse of the badge is marked "39808". To my knowledge this badge number has not been researched. The safety pin shows some wear. The very tip has lo been lost to time so it doesn't really engage the catch. The raised medallion in the center is marked "Gesch Gesch".
A 100% original example here.
NSDAPMEDALS #40401C Golden Party Badge Belonging to SS-Obergrppenfhrer Friedrich Hildebrandt
Considering the original owner, this Golden Party Badge is an extremely desirable collectible. It was issued to SS-Obergrppenfhrer Friedrich Hildebrandt, who was also the Gaulieter of Mecklenberg. It is interesting to note that in the SS Deinstalterliste Hilderbrandt appears as #29! Obviously he was one of the the initial Party players and obviously of some importance. Hildebrandt was also awarded a SS Honor Ring and a SS Honor Degen. As of 1942 he was still on Himmler's staff.
The badge is accompanied by a large book (in German) which has a large amount of information about Hildebrandt and his very long career, which came to an abrupt end in 1947 when he was executed by the Allies.
The Badge itself is the smaller type that would have been worn on a lapel. It is equipped with a screw-back mounting, which is rare in and of itself. The oak leaves on the border are still in good shape, showing some mild wear but nothing too bad. The enamelwork on the front of the badge remains in very fine condition.
This badge is not maker marked on the reverse, but I have it on good authority that it was in fact produced by the prestigious firm of Deschler & Sohn, Munich. It is clearly stamped with Hildebrandt's Party Number "3653"; this number matches up with the Deinstalterliste.
A very fine Golden Party Badge here, with an infamous pedigree that only makes it even more collectible.

The reverse is stamped "86690"; all Fuess-marked GPB's were stamped along the bottom curve of the reverse surface. In the center is a safety pin and the maker marking "Jos. Fuess Mnchen".
A good, original example here, with a number that could be a research project.

The chain is a brass coated type which appears to have a steel base. Attached at the bottom area is a 15 year long service award. It is the type with Maltese cross, having blue enamel in the legs of the cross and also behind the open-winged eagle and swastika wreath in the center. Between the legs are rays to give effect.
