Thanks guys.

I'm working on adding a fourth one right now and it should be here this week. I'll post a pic or two when it arives.

These are some of the nicest badges , but try finding one for a decent price!

Franz Xaver Schwarz hand signed the Gold Party Badge certificates?

I notice from this second group two different "joining" days, which compares to that shown in the first group's NSDAP membership book and the "actual date" of the number based on Hessen-Nassau's list.

I can only think the two dtes mean: signed up on/registered by the Party?

Yes , F. X. Schwarz handsigned them all.

I believe these were first handed out in 1933. Perhaps, Riedel received his later because of his higher number.

As for the descepency in dates. Perhaps , people would get their badges out of order? It was not like today , where one could just pop in quickly. If Riedel had to travel to pick up his badges , perhaps that is why the date is later? A delay?

I am only guessing. I am sure there are others who know way more than I.

Guest WAR LORD

I have the Red Party book and his military citations as well as his decorations and badges. He was awarded the SS Honour ring but unfortunatly this never came. He also had the candle stick.

Hello War Lord,

This is a beautiful set, I have seen the picture of that certain Allgemeine member before somewhere... It is a very poignant picture for to me he looks like an Englishman! Fantastic....

Kurt,

Love your set, it is equally beautiful. Not a collector of these sorts of badges at all but the pair are different sizes... I would assume for different usage? Is this correct?

Thanks you both for sharing love.gif
