Golden Party Badge with Interesting Documentation/Photos-This is also housed in a nice, custom display case. Starting with the badge, which is produced in tombak and is the 25mm version for civilian clothing. The enamel has just minor wear and discoloration. The gilt finish is just partially visible in the lower areas of the badge. There is only minor wear to the badge itself though, which has wonderful detail. The reverse of the badge has a functional pin back, with a base that is marked “Deschler München 9”. The number of the badge, 63281, is stamped onto the reverse. There are three pictures of the recipient included…two in his military uniform and one in civilian clothing wearing this exact badge. Handwritten in pencil onto the back of the civilian picture is “Juli 43 oder Jan 44.”. Documentation included in the grouping is very interesting! A translation is included for both documents. The first one, dated 29 August 1931, indicates that Helmut Hirsch, the man in the photos, has offended the district and is hereby disqualified from membership. The document states that he is “also obviously inadequate as a local party boss of the South Johanstadt section”.  A resolution comes on the second document, dated 23 November 1931. It indicates that their exclusion has been rejected on the grounds that it was unfounded. Good stuff! There is much interesting information in these documents that you will enjoy, as this is simply a quick synopsis. Lastly, there is a nice vintage case for the badge. This appears to be a ring case but fits the badge well and is definitely vintage. An awesome grouping!
