GOLD PARTY BADGE OF THE NSDAP, SPECIAL ADOLF HITLER AWARD FOR 1943 WITH UNIQUE DATE.
This is an example of the very rare Adolf Hitler special award honour gold party badge with his AH initials and date of the award to the reverse side of the badge rather than the standard type with the owners party membership number, this example is even more unusual as it features a unique presentation date.This is a large 30mm example, the obverse side is the standard format of gilt oakleaves wreath with enamel NSDAP badge to center which is in perfect condition. The reverse side features the military style pin and hook and is marked GES GESCH in a box with air vent hole, below this is the unique date 15.5.1943 with the AH initials, most of the specially presented Adolf Hitler gold party badge's will have a January 30th award date, it is very unusual to see a different month and day date and probably less than 5% will feature this.The date possibly refers to a military event, a meeting with Adolf Hitler, promotion or a Birthday but i have not been able to identify which, the Warsaw Jewish ghetto uprising was crushed and the survivors surrender on the 16.5.1943 so that might be significant. Further research is required to hopefully identify the original owner and it will certainly make an interesting reserch project. Other than the date this is a standard example of the special AH award badge and it is in superb condition. [Condition: Near Mint]
