The NSDAP Golden Party badge was instituted by Adolf Hitler on October 13th 1933 to reward those NSDAP members who had served the party continuously from February 27th 1925, and held a party membership number of 100,000, or below. The originally bestowal of the badges was on November 9th 1933, and further regulations dictated that Hitler held the right to render the award to personnel who had provided exemplary service to the NSDAP or Greater Germany. These secondary awards were bestowed annually on January 30TH and differ slightly from the original badges. The difference in the original issue badges and the secondary issue was that the original issues had the members NSDAP party number engraved on the reverse while the secondary, January 30th issued badges had Hitler’s initials and the exact date of the award engraved to the reverse. The badge was awarded in two sizes with a small 25mm diameter badge for wear on civilian clothing and a larger 30.5mm badge for wear on political or military uniforms. The introductory regulations stated that the recipient must have continuous, unbroken service with the party and on leaving the party the badge could no longer be worn. The regulations also stipulated that on the death of the recipient the family may keep the badge as a memento. Due to the “continuous” service clause in the award criteria, anyone who’s service time had been interrupted was ineligible for award of the badge. Only 20,487 men and 1,795 women were awarded the badge on these terms. out of the possible 100,000. (646mlm) LH11586
