Title NSDAP (party) cap eagle, 2nd model
Nationality German
Period c 1936-45
Sold

These were introduced around about 1936 and may well have been made right up until the closing stages of the war. Typically seen on SA sports kepis and occasionally on the peaked service cap, it was replaced by a later model with a longer wing span somewhere in the early 1940s.

This is made of pressed tin with a zinc finish. Originally it may have been gilt, as zinc is notorious for absorbing any silver/gilt wash. Its condition is average for this sort of piece, with rust to the reverse. One of the prongs is missing.

testimonials

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
