Great Original Near-mint NSKK Uniform Kepi (Item NSKK 1-1)

DESCRIPTION: This NSKK kepi is made from high-quality wool gabardine tan cloth. The kepi bears the typical black wool/doeskin color band, NSKK Bevo woven eagle and swastika, silver NSKK button, and black chinstrap, along with the inserted brown-wool piping. To the inside, the kepi bears the typical orange cotton lining with brown ersatz leather sweatband. The kepi retains the linen Dienstmütze RZM label behind the sweatband. This piece is in fantastic condition and is extra rare. Inside the lining in the crown there is a stamped number sequence “797026.” This very well might be an issue number. The only tiny bit of damage–if we could call it that–is a one-inch tear in the orange lining, but it does not affect the overall minty condition and handsome look of this great N.S. treasure. Rest assured you will never see a better one offered. By the way, this is the most handsome kepi belonging to the paramilitary functionaries of the N.S. Reich; richer looking than its SA forerunner.

PRICE:   $1,450.00


More about the NSKK

The National Socialist Motor Corps (Nationalsozialistisches Kraftfahrkorps, NSKK), was a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party that existed from 1931 to 1945. The group was a successor organization to the older National Socialist Automobile Corps (NSAK), which had existed since the beginning of 1930. The NSKK was the smallest of the Nazi Party organizations and had originally been formed as a motorized corps of the Sturmabteilung (SA), literally “Storm Detachment.” On 20 July 1934, the group had a membership of approximately 10,000. It was separated from the SA to become a totally independent organization. The primary aim of the NSKK was to educate its members in motoring skills, and were mainly trained in the operation and maintenance of high-performance motorcycles and automobiles. Membership in the NSKK did not require any knowledge of automobiles, and the group accepted persons for membership who did not possess driver’s licenses. The thought was that its rigorous training scheme would make up for any previous lack of knowledge or driving skills. The NSKK did, however, adhere to Nazi racial doctrine and screened its members for Aryan qualities. The German Third Reich NSKK was also a paramilitary organization with its own system of paramilitary ranks.

NSKK Stickpin (Item NSKK 1-2; SA 8-4; PINS 4-21)

DESCRIPTION: This is one of the pieces of Third Reich jewelry that was acquired when we bought the massive collection in Stuttgart. See “About Our Rings.” The NSKK was the Motor Corps of the original SA Storm Troops. Its uniform was the same as the SA except for black trousers and a black crash helmet when in parade formation. This is the stickpin for off-duty wear and is marked on the back ‘800’ (silver).

NSKK Car Plaque from Breslau 1933 (Item NSKK 1-3; SA 12-16)

DESCRIPTION: This is a very impressive automobile plaque in a large size 3 ½ x 2 ¼   in silver color. We found two of these in a recent German trip, one in bronze and one in silver plating.  They have the typical NSKK eagle with the NSKK letters overhead.  The word Stern fahrt” appears and this translates to “Star Journey” and this indicates possibly a nighttime exercise on the 10th of September 1933 ( the year of the NSDAP assumption of power.  For further knowledge abut the NSKK (National Socialist Motor Corps) See other listings in this (SA section) of the site. Use (search Germania) if you wish, found on the home page. The city of Breslau will go down in future history as the bravest city in world history.  The people put up a heroic struggle to the death against the murderous Red hordes in 1945 and fought valiantly to the last grandpa alive.  This was the Alamo of the Reich!  A beautiful and meaningful relic of the European struggle against Bolshevism and a early important piece from the beginning of it all as well.

PRICE:   $265.00

Complete NSKK Motorcycle Riders Uniform: All Original--Nothing Replaced (Item NSKK 1-6; SA 14-32)

DESCRIPTION: This is an outstanding and ultrarare uniform of the National Socialist Motor Corps (Nationalsozialistisches Kraftfahrkorps). This was a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party (NSDAP). This corps officially existed from May 1931 to 1945. The group was a successor organization to the older National Socialist Automobile Corps (NSAK), which had existed since April 1930. The NSKK served as a training organization, mainly instructing members in the operation and maintenance of high-performance motorcycles and automobiles. The NSKK was further used to transport NSDAP and SA officials/members. The NSKK also served as a roadside assistance group in the mid-1930s, comparable to the modern-day American Automobile Association or the British Automobile Association. With the outbreak of World War II, NSKK ranks were recruited to serve in the transport crops of various German military branches. It was the smallest of the Nazi Party organizations. Adolf Huhnlein was appointed the leader of the NSAK that was to serve as a motorized corps of the Sturmabteilung (SA). Thereafter, Huhnlein suggested the name be changed to National Socialist Motor Corps (NSKK). The name change became official on May 1, 1931. It was a paramilitary organization with its own system of paramilitary ranks and as we have stated was the smallest of the Nazi Party organizations. On July 20, 1934, three weeks after the major purge the SA suffered during the Night of the Long Knives, the 10,000-member-strong NSKK was separated and promoted into an independent NSDAP organization. From 1935 onward, the NSKK also provided training for Panzer crews and drivers of the German army. By 1938, the members underwent mechanics and operational training for both civilian- and military-type vehicles. With the outbreak of WWII in Europe on September 1,1939, the National Socialist Motor Corps became a target for army recruitment, since NSKK members possessed knowledge of motorized transport, a coveted skill when the bulk of German ground forces relied on horses. The NSKK itself was formed into transport companies to move German Army troops, supplies, and ammunition.

The NSKK complete uniform

The extremely rare and complete uniform that Germania International now offers is comprised of the following:

Leather crash helmet of the motor crops
Tunic that is 100-percent correct to the NSKK. It has the necktie and SA sports badge. The collar tabs with unit designation are blue with “3/464” embroidered on them. The right side has two metal pips, which designate this trooper to be an NSKK Truppführer (staff sergeant)
Waist belt of heavy-duty leather that goes through a special wide loop in the back of the tunic specially designed for it
Armband that is not sewn in place, but is completely original to the outfit
Diamond-shaped patch with the NSKK eagle sleeve insignia. This patch was particularly for motorcycle operators.
Single shoulder board (proper) for a Truppführer
Early belt buckle—the absolutely correct one for NSKK
Leather over-the-shoulder strap. (Sam Browne style!)
Issue black trousers (riding-style jodhpurs). All are proper to this outfit and in top condition.
Boots—very nice, very black—and in beautiful condition and perfectly matched to this outfit
Last, but certainly not least: NSKK-issue dagger as manufactured by Eickhorn in beautiful A-1 condition. These daggers are much rarer than the SA dagger and to see it as part of this extraordinary complete outfit is nothing short of outstanding!.

Note: The tunic not only has the special belt-retainer loop at the back, but it has several metallic hook-style belt retainers going all around the bottommost garment hem. The crash helmet shows much honest wear, but is all there and complete and has the N.S. eagle peculiar to this usage alone in the uniforms of the Third Reich. No other corps ever used this particular eagle; later the style was changed but this is the early one. So, here is the most complete NSKK uniform that we have ever seen: complete with all original parts; all from one purchase from the relatives of the original wearer. Here is an opportunity to purchase one of the most glamorous uniforms of the Third Reich. Glamorous? Yes, in the fact that it is all original and all there! And yes indeed the crowds in the German streets back in the 30s and 40s yelled their loudest when the -Leibstandarte marched by and even possibly louder still when the battalions of motorcycles of the NSKK thundered by. This rare outfit is offered complete for a very reasonable price.

PRICE: $7,850.00. If you add up what all these component parts would sell for you can readily see that this is a very reasonable price for certain.

Official Crash Helmet of the National Socialist Motor Corps (Item NSKK 1-7; SA 14-26a)

DESCRIPTION: This unit, also known as the National Socialist Drivers Corps, was a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party that existed from 1931. The group was successor to the older National Socialist Automobile Corps, which had existed since the beginning of 1930. It was headed by Adolf Hühnlein from 1934. The National Socialist Motor Corps was the smallest of the Nazi Party organizations and originally had been formed as a motorized corps of the Sturmabteilung (SA). On July 20, 1934, the group had a membership of approximately ten thousand and was separated from the SA to become the independent organization. Further on, the Motor SA was removed from the SA and merged into its “junior partner,” the NSKK. The primary aim of the NSKK was to educate its members in motor skills. In the mid 1930s the NSKK also served well the government. They were trained in the operation and maintenance of high-performance motorcycles and automobiles in the 1930s and 1940s. The NSKK also served as a roadside-assistance group comparable to the AAA (American Automobile Association). With the outbreak of WWII the NSKK was absolutely a natural for recruitment by the Wehrmacht since members possessed knowledge of motorized transport, whereas the bulk of the Wehrmacht relied on horses. The NSKK was indeed a paramilitary organization in the first place so from 1935 onward the organization also provided training for the Panzer crews of the German army.

The Crash Helmet

This is a variant of the first pattern helmet. It’s made of black Vulcan fiber with black-leather “crash rolls” with a protective flap that flips over the back of the wearer’s neck. It’s perforated at each ear port that will fasten under the chin with metal buckle. It bears a pressed-metal, early-style NSDAP eagle insignia with mobile swastika on the Reichsadler (eagle). The brown-leather liner is marked size “57” and stamped with the manufacturer’s mark. The overall condition is good with some drying and cracking to the black-leather neck flap, but some black leather dye and shoe polish could do wonders here! RARE! Truly rare!

PRICE: $1,895.00; Early–really early

NSKK Eagle Pin

NSKK 1st-Type Eagle Plate for Crash Helmet (Item NSKK 1-8; SA 14-33)

DESCRIPTION: This is the helmet eagle issued to an NSKK (National Socialist Motor Corps) trooper. It is in good shape except for the fact that the upper retaining pins are missing on the back of the insignia. These can usually be easily replaced if you wish to mount this on a crash helmet or just show it in your display mount. This is a neat-looking eagle.

PRICE: $350.00
