NSDAPMEDALS #45578 Gau Party District Honour Badge
This impressive badge remains in choice condition and is a rarely seen original. These badges were awarded under a Gauleiter to reward recipients for services during "the time of struggle". It consists of a finely-detailed, stamped round wreath of overlapping oak leaves, to which a large enamel swastika is superimposed. In the center of the swastika is the date of "1923". The enamel is an interesting brown color and remains in perfect condition.
The reverse of the medal shows that the enamel swastika is riveted to the oak leaf wreath, having "donut" style rivets. On the reverse center of the swastika it is marked, "A. Wächtler & Lance/ Mittweida" and below, "800" indicating the medal is silver. The markings are raised-out, rather than being stamped. The pin is an odd shape that seems to be unique to these Gau Honor Badges, being a long straight pin that is bent over at the half, with the other ends being 90 degree-turned to insert into a barrel-style hinge. There is also a catch which appears soldered to the medal.
A rare example here seldom offered. I have seen other badges where the enamel is black, but this enamel is definitely brown and was made that way.

NSDAPMEDALS #40401C Golden Party Badge Belonging to SS-Obergrppenführer 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.
