NSDAPMEDALS #43438 24mm Golden Party Badge Presented to Female NSDAP Member
This Golden Party Badge is in fine condition throughout with good detail to the surrounding oak leaves and a fine enamel center with no breaks or fractures. In fact, the enamel to the badge is in nearly full perfect condition.
The reverse of the badge still has its good gold finish complete with safety pin type catch it is unmarked and it is stamped with the number "63327".
The Party Badge is accompanied by a dossier which indicates the badge was awarded to Hildit Zorn. Ms. Zorn was born August 16th 1908 and she was married to Generalmajor der Infanterie and NSDAP Blood Order carrier Eduard Zorn who was born August 8th 1901.
Generalmajor Zorn was also the recipient of the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves on February 16th 1945. There is also a dossier on the general.
Quite an interesting Party Badge here as not many were awarded to female Party members.

NSDAPMEDALS #42809C Pair of Matching Golden Party Badges Belonging to SD Brigadeführer
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 München". The Party number is also clearly visible, "90851". The larger badge has a similar safety pin and is marked "Deschler & Sohne München 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 Brigadeführer 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 Hauptsturmführer. As of November of 1944 Freise is listed as a Sturmbahnführer 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 #38050C 1929 NSDAP Rally Badge
This NSDAP Rally Badge was distributed at the 1929 Party Day. The '29 rally was very important to Hitler as it marked the start of German industrialists providing him (and the Party) with financial backing. These badges wore worn very proudly be the attendees of this seminal event.
The badge is fairly thick and heavy and has a silver finish. It depicts a medieval Nuremberg at the top, with the word “Nüremberg” below. In the center is a raised helmet with a wreathed swastika and eagle. Flanking the eagle are the dates “1914” and “1919” and “NSDAP”, the year the Party was established. Below the helmet are the raised words “Partie Tag 1929”.
The reverse has some gray paint remaining, thinning at the edges. There is also a vertically mounted safety pin catch. The maker mark, “Hoffstatter/Bonn/Ges Gesch”, is also present.
A very difficult badge to find here, and a great addition to any medals collection.

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 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-Obergrüppenführer Friedrich Hildebrandt
Considering the original owner, this Golden Party Badge is an extremely desirable collectible. It was issued to SS-Obergrüppenführer 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 München".

This neck chain appears to have been made up probably by the original wearer to display his NSDAP service awards while in civilian dress. 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. On the reverse the cross also has blue enamel and in the center has the purpose of the award, “Treue / für Führer / und Volk”. This of course means “Loyalty to the Führer and the People”. This medal is in excellent condition throughout with no breaks or damage to the enamel.
Attached at the upper right of the chain is a miniature for the 10 Year Bronze Award and at the left is a miniature for the 25 Year NSDAP award. This miniature has all of the white enamel in place on front and back and is an extremely rare medal. This chain may have been worn with a tuxedo or possibly a dress civilian uniform.
