3/11/20 - The Red Nazi Party Leader book was for identification as a Nazi Party leader as well as evidence that one's membership was in good standing (paying dues). This one is unusual as the man it was issued to joined the party when he was 18 years old. He joined early - May of 1933. Most of the early members were former soldiers in WW1 and disgruntled with the political situation in Germany. To join at 18 was pretty rare. This book and the lapel pin came together from an estate sale in Germany. Both are in excellent condition and should be kept together, however we have priced separately - $300 for the book, $100 for the pin.
