This Golden Party Badge has all of the features that make it stand out as one of the top examples in a Gold Party Badge collection I had the fortune to purchase out of. This is a nearly flawless example featuring perfect enamel, 95% or better gold finish, and a very scarce "military style" pin. Out of ever 100 Gold Party Badges, one might encounter one of these. What makes this piece special is that it is attributed to Franz Reitz, who was from Munich, joined the party very early in 1925, and who carried BLOOD ORDER number 824! Yes, he was not only one of the earliest party members, but also marched with Hitler at the Feldherrnhalle. Accompanying this badge is a piece of full-length Blood Order ribbon, that I believe to be a very early reproduction. It would "fool" most people, and is perfect for use in a Blood Order box if you don't have a ribbon. It certainly brings out the history behind this badge!
