SOLD (mh) SS Identified Gold NSDAP Party Badge by DeschlerSKU: SijprpbgSS
This is a fine example of a gold party badge, numbered to Allgemeine-SS Obersturmfűhrer Erich Elligsen (source was the SS-Dienstalterliste from 1936). Elligsen’s party number is a lower one, indicating early membership; and his SS number is also relatively low. He was an “Alte Kämpfer” for sure. The badge comes from a 5 decade collection that has yielded some fine medals, insignia and other militaria. More research can be conducted on the Elligsen once the national archives opens up again. A fine example, ID’d to an SS member! COA accompanies.
