Reichparteitag pins/badges

Post by Wolf2019 » 16 Mar 2019 16:03

Hi,
Can anyone out there please help ?
Have seen some Reichparteitag "badges" for sale.,from the 1930's. Assume I am correct in saying that they would not have an RZM number? Also,each badge seems to have different markings, a wide variety in fact, on the reverse side, would these badges have been inscribed with the owner's name ?Appreciate any advice that can be given, thanks....

Reichspartietag badges were made by dozens of different makers.... None would be "named" to an individual, early dates would not be RZM marked, but later ones would be. These were sold to help sponsor the event each year, so except for the early years are quite common. They also tend to oxidize badly, so condition is everything.
Hope this helps.

Thanks to you both....John G, can I ask, the 1937 RPT tinnie I have seen simply has G Brehmer Markneukirchen on reverse no RZM .....does this strike you as suspect ? The maker's name is well known,fine... Condition overall not that good re oxidization....but definitely no RZM for this 1937 item..
Really appreciate any tips you can give...

Without seeing it, hard to make a definitive answer.... But not suspect as such.
Bremher is certainly one of the makers, many companies made badges without being under RZM until mandatory about 1937/38. A 1937 Brenner RPT tinney is perfectly correct without RZM..

Does anyone know anything about this particular German badge. I want to sell it but have no idea of its worth or its origin. It was brought back to Canada by a Canadian War Vet in 1946.

The badge is a Naval Auxiliary Cruiser War badge, awarded to crew of merchant raiders like Atlantis, Thor, and others.... Looks ok but pictures are not good enough to be sure, very high quality reproductions are out there. Assuming it's real value would be from $350.00 to $650.00, maybe more.
Good luck.
