DESCRIPTION

Scarce Gold Party Badge set consisting of the large (30mm) Deschler and small (25mm) Fuess badges with matching Party membership number 33907.  Both badges are textbook examples with only normal signs of age and handling. Both have the correct pin plates and unbroken pins. The Fuess pin is slightly misshapen but is unbroken and will still latch. The small badge shows some verdigris to the inner edge of the wreath and some wear to the enamel.  It appears that the original wearer wore the small 25mm badge much more often than the 30mm.  Included with the set is a pair of Kreis Level Political Leader collar tabs for an Oberbereichsleiter.  The tabs are in fine condition and the metal fittings retain their factory fire gilt finish. I'm do not know whether or not the badge recipient's Party membership number has been researched but I suspect it has not. A potenially interesting research project!

NEWS FLASH: Was contacted by a collector who identified this set as belonging to "Max Pithan" of Gau Westfalen-Sud.  I Googled this info, and discovered that he was indeed a Kreisleiter in the Gau, so these collar tabs make pefect sense.
