Estimated market value:
The uniforms, headgear, and insignia of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP) went through several design changes from 1933 until the end of the Second World War. Dr. Ley, originally the Gauleiter of Rheinland and later promoted to the position of chief of staff of Party Organization and Reich Organization Leader, was largely responsible for the NSDAP rank system and uniforms.
The shoulder boards were only utilized for regular NSDAP members for a short period of time, from 1932 until 1934.
The Gauleiter Shoulder Boards feature a bright red coloured cloth base with gold-coloured cords (twisted gilt wire) and a single horizontal section of gold-coloured cord (twisted gilt wire) at the bottom.
