I sent to an Estate Sale this weekend and they had a number of WWII Nazi pins and Iron Crosses. This one the gentleman running the sale said his war memorabilia specialist was unable to identify. My husband said "Oh GOD, now she is going to buy it" LOL, he was right. I had to buy it so I could do some research and figure out what it was. Here is what I found:
This is a nice 1-3/4 inch diameter 1939 dated badge, with the NSDAP emblem and nude mother and child with wheat sheaves and grape arbor on the face. It is a solid heavy high relief badge with a press applied spring pin.
NSDAP 1939 Reichsparteitag Tinnie badge, Aluminium metal with a clip fitting. This badge of NSDAP Reichsparteitag 1939 (NSDAP party convention 1939). This event was intended to start on Sep 2 1939 but was suspended in late August 1939 because Hitler was preparing the Poland operation of WW2. The slogan of the covention would ironically have been "Reichsparteitag des Friedens" (Reich party convention of peace) So this badge is of an event that never took place!
If anyone has any further information about this badge, pin I would love to learn more!
