Possible early NSDAP badge

Post by peterdgreaves » 04 Aug 2019 15:05

I would be interested in comments on this. Supposedly this was given to a South African, the name I heard was Oswald Pirot, who went over and supported the party in the 30s. It was subsequently given to my grandfather who lived in Johannesburg in the 50s and I recently inherited it. Given the low number (52) I'd be interested in finding out how you validate items like this.

Regular party members pin, several things look questionable but since it is an fairly early transitional version with at least some provenance, I'll give it the benefit of doubt..... The #52 is the makers code not an issue number.
Not way of verifying the story.... Really just a nice enamel party pin.... Nothing special.
