DESCRIPTION

Gau Thüringen Badge in Bronze is in mint condition and has survived in its matching numbered packet. Both the badge and the packet are numbered '1176'.  The packet is also maker marked by the only manufacturer identified, being Danner of Mühlhausen.  The 1943 Doehle book lists only a silver grade awarded to the first 1000 party members in the Gau, however a handful of unissued bronze grades have been veteran purchased, and these are mostly unissued. There are a few theories about why these exist, and why there are 2 or 3 examples with a gilt finish. It's suggested that the bronze awards were intended to be bestowed on individuals for exceptional Party service to Gau Thüringen but who, by their party membership numbers, did not qualify for the silver example. Period documentation, if it exists, has not yet been found. Nonetheless, this is an original unissued award.
