GOLD PARTY BADGE OF THE NSDAP BELONGING TO FRANZ WEITESSER WITH LARGE RESEARCH FILE.
This is a superb large size 30mm gold party badge in fine condition with the more desirable and difficult to find military style pin to the reverse side.The badge is in just about mint condition, the oakleaf wreath still retains almost all original gilt finish and there is no damage to the enamel badge.The reverse side also retains almost all of the original gilt finish and it is marked GES GESCH in a box and below this the original owners NSDAP membership number 52272, the military style pin and hook are in perfect working order. The badge was awarded to Franz Weitesser, he was born on the 8.9.1905 in Oberdonau in Austria, he was married to Cristina who was German and apparently they did not have any children. They lived in the town of Freistadt in the Ober Oesterreich and his occupation was secret investigator. He joined the NSDAP on the 1.2.27 with membership number 52272 which matches the number on the reverse side of the badge. Mysteriously he joined the party for a second time on the 1.4.1928 while already a member but this was soon realized and his second membership was canceled and he retained his original membership number 52272 until the end of the war, why he tried to join the party twice is really a bit of a mystery and not something i have ever encountered before. There is a large document file accompanying the badge of over 30 pages so i imagine much more can be discovered from these from careful study. A beautiful example, gold party badges have become very difficult to find recently and this really is an outstanding documented example. [Condition: Near Mint]
