Patriotic Tapestry (politically incorrect) (Item SA 4-1)
|DESCRIPTION: This is an incredible and beautiful tapestry of the Kampfzeit period of N.S. history. It's one of the finest representations of Bewegung thought and portrayal that we have yet seen. It has come from that border of Germany that touches Czechoslovakia. The silver brocade eagle is of the 1920's type. The flags are done in fine embroidery that is utterly and prodigiously superb. The true Germanic flat-weaved effect is exampled here at its best. The center bears a new color print of SA troopers with the swastika banner. The picture that was originally there was a picture of a young SA man who died in the war. The family relinquished the tapestry knowing they couldn't display it in the "politically correct Germany" of today, but they naturally kept the photograph of their kin. The picture shown to me was that of an SA man from the marine (naval) division of the SA, thus, the anchor motif in the center surrounding the picture section. The saying at the top refers to "better death than slavery" and a "heil" to the new German leader at the bottom. The tapestry with frame measures 22 x 18 inches and is under glass. This is a very resplendent and historically powerful piece that transcends the banal mediocre offerings on other sites.
SA or Political Leader's Standard-bearer's Bandolier (Item SA 4-4)
|DESCRIPTION: This is the typical, but rare, device that is worn by die Fahnentrager, or bearer of the regimental standard. There were different-colored ones for various groups. The SS one was naturally with black center stripe. This one that we offer here is the brown one for the SA Sturmabteilung, or the corps of political leaders of the NSDAP. We believe the color and form to be the same regarding the bandoliers of these two units. The side strips at each edge are in a machine-sewn brocade while a smaller brocade trails the inner part. This is laid upon a brown velvet material and the far edges have a blue leather piping. Inside there is a hidden adjustment for length. The backside of the bandolier has a flap that covers the adjustment features. The whole of this is underpinned with a fine leather strap. The actual part that accepts the standard is very well made and durable to carry the weight of the flag. The present adjusted length is 33 inches and the band is 3 ½ inches wide. There are no discernable marking anywhere on the device. Although colored differently, all of the standard-bearer's bandoliers after 1933 were basically the same in construction as you can see from some of the attached pictures of SA, police, and standard bearers. The condition of this item is excellent plus and as stated, it is a rare accouterment item of the party.
N.S.F.K. Patch for Sports Shirt
(Item SA 4-5)
|DESCRIPTION: The NSFK (National Socialist Flying Corps) was revived in 1937. Its actual foundation date was in January 1932. Its first Korpsführer was a distinguished WW I Naval hero, airman, and winner of the Pour le Mérite (Blue Max) Fredrich Christiansen. It was largely a part-time organization with its duties as its name suggests mainly with flying and paramilitary exercises (Wehrsport. The NSFK was Divided into three main sections: powered aircraft, gliders, and balloons. This was one of the most important organizations within the NSDAP in that it gave birth to the mighty Luftwaffe. The patch is about 6 x 4 inches and is in perfect shape.
N.S.K.K Cap (Motor Corps) (Rottenführer)
(Item SA 4-6)
|DESCRIPTION: This is a rare field cap of the NSKK (National Socialist Motor Corps). This type was introduced on August 31, 1935. The two 14-mm-diameter aluminum buttons featuring the NSKK emblem superimposed on a spoked wheel are at the lower front. The NSKK emblem on an inverted triangle in the group color is sewn on the upper-left front. This example looks to have a light-blue color, but according to the reference book it may be light-green and belong to the Alpengrünostsee and Thüringen group. The rank of Rottenführer is indicated by the two bullion stripes sewn at an angle on the flap. The inside liner bears the “RZM” sewn in tag and identifies this as a Feldmütze (field cap). The NSKK was the nationwide pool of motorized transport that enabled rapid transportation and was used as a definitive show of strength. It was Adolf Hitler who directed Martin Bormann to create such an organization. The NSKK came under the jurisdiction of the SA. The leader of this action group was later under its own command led by an ex-army major and old associate of Adolf Hitler, Adolf Hühnlein, born in 1881. He had blind devotion to the Führer. He was of the rank of SA-Obergruppenführer. The cap is in beautiful condition with very little mothing. Please do not ask for size. It seems to be a fairly medium size. This cap can be rare and is definitely important to the party collector.
