Pixel-accurate reproduction of an early NSDAP membership card.
This version was issued for members joining from 1931-1936. From 1937 it was replaced by the 3rd generation available from Krause as well.
After a full year of uninterrupted membership this card would be replaced with a NSDAP Membership Book. The card contained basic member information in the front and place for membership dues stamps (for up to 1 year) in the back.
You can get the card filled out to your specification on a period German typewriter. The front page will contain data you provide and stamps like in the pictures (Ortsgruppe, NSDAP member number, etc).
You can also select option with pasted membership dues stamps for 6 months, or full year . You can purchase more stamps separately. If you want to learn more about NSDAP membership dues check out my blog article on that topic!
For filled out version please provide:
- membership number (see guidelines below) - if you don't provide, I'll come up with one appropriate to the year joining
- First and last name (optionally profession, esp. if you're ordering with stamps - I'll determine your salary and get the right value stamps)
- Address (town and street), Ortsgruppe if you know (otherwise and I'll figure it out based on the town)
- NSDAP joining date
- (optionally) card issue date (recomended a couple of months after joining)
Unil 1939 member would also have a separate NSDAP Hilfskasse Card to put monthly due stamps worth 30 RPf to help party members in trouble, or families of party martyrs.
