Hi Guys,

I have just purchased this 30.5mm Golden Party Badge and I have been searching the internet trying to put a name to the number but with no luck.

I have contacted Robert McDivitt but he has not got back to me yet, so I thought I would post it here and hopefully someone can help me out.

The number is 53622

Apparently there was/is a NSDAP golden badge list kept by the NSDAP HQ-similar to Rick R's medal rolls. There is a partial alpha list in the US national archives-without numbers, but it's a start.

A JOMSA article in the early 1970s had a xerox of 374 along with all the data next to it.

There is no complete list of the 22,000+ Gold Party badge holders. One was maintained by the NSDAP Treasurer's office (Franz X. Schwarz), but it was apparently destroyed in 1945. All lists today have been assembled from partial lists, like the SS Dienstalterslisten, Gau lists and other sources. Individual numbers can be found in the manual NSDAP membership card index of about 9 million names in the Berlin Document Center.

Sorry, your number isn't in my partial list.

In a JOMSA article in the 1970s there was a reference to a NSDAP Golden badge list. Within the article itself was a printing of the badges' original owners' information. A couple of years later a commentator mentioned that the list was held in germany, but had been made unavailable. However, the author also stated that a complete list was held BY NAME ONLY in the US archives, but numbers were not on the list. Alas, there were no references cited.

thank you Erich S.  I have not actually purchased the pin yet but I had my suspicion it was a copy due to how many repros there are out there.  Could you please tell me what are the reasons or ways to tell this one is fake so I can tell the seller? I noticed the E wasn't uniform thickness as the other letters on the front and the numbers on the back didn't line up.

thanks again everyone for all the info!  now I'm wondering if you guys could help me identifying a stickpin from my personal collection.  this one I believe is %100 authentic though probably not worth a whole lot.  The reason I think this one is something is because it's numbered like the gold party pins. Wondering how much its worth?  couldn't find any examples online of it.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
