Estimated market value:
The Badge was instituted in late 1936, and was conferred upon individuals in Gau Berlin (district) who served in the Nazi Party during the Kampfzeit or “Time of Struggle” when the Nazis struggled to gain political power.
The Nazi Regime divided Germany into a series of districts of “Gaue” to facilitate nationwide Party administration.
Every Gau was administered by a Gauleiter or “District Leader.” In October 1926, Hitler appointed Dr. Goebbels as the Gauleiter of Berlin.
The Badge was conferred upon male and female Nazi Party members who had held membership since June 1, 1927.
There were 31 Gold Badges awarded.
