Amazingly accurate reproduction of NSDAP membership card with embossed seal of NSDAP Reichsleitung!
This version was for members joining from 1937-1942.
A new party recruit would have such a card for the first 2 years of the membership. It contained basic information about the member (front) and place for membership dues stamps for 2 years (reverse).
After 2 years of uninterrupted dues payment (proven by this card) a member would be eligible for an NSDAP Membership Book.
Card can be filled out to your specification on a period German typewriter. First page with data you provide and stamps like in the pictures (Ortsgruppe, NSDAP member number, etc).
You can also select option with glued in membership dues stamps for 6mo or 1 year. You can purchase more stamps separately here (pre-1939) and here (from 1939)! 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)
- Date and place of birth
- Address (town and street) and Ortsgruppe, if you know, otherwise I'll figure it out based on the address
- NSDAP joining date
- (optionally) card issue date (recomended shortly after joining)
Unil 1939 a member would also have a separate NSDAP Hilfskasse Card to put monthly dues stamps worth 30 RPf to help party members in trouble, or faimlies of party martyrs.
