Just Imagine.....

...having control of the State of Texas in the USA, or Surrey in England, or Normandy in France.

This was the extent of power one of Hitler's Gauleiters had between

1925 and 1945.


In 1934 there were just 32 Gau in Germany with one Gauleiter heading each area.

 

Item description: NSDAP Gauleiter rank brown shirt for sale, circa 1934. The brown shirt manufactured in a very fine quality brown cotton. The shirt with red collar edge piping, and retaining the collar patches for the rank of Gauleiter, with full double golden wire oakleaves on red wool.The collar patches are machine sewn into position, and the collar has additional off white bone or early plastic collar stiffeners in position.

The shirt retains a very high quality version of the NSDAP cotton armband. Possibly in keeping with the rank of Gauleiter, this armband is beautifully finished around the edge of the white roundel, and has a fully embroidered black swastika.

The shirt, with two pleated pockets,  is complete with all golden eagle/swastika buttons, along with NSDAP golden pebble finished belt retainers. There is provision for two awards to the left-hand pocket, along with loops for a long ribbon bar.  Interior with fine partial off white cotton lining, and with an elaborate machine woven tailors label with swastika logo.  In addition to the label is the RZM logo, along with relevant numbering.

Condition report: The shirt of high quality and free from any moth or damage. The shirt shows some general use, and this is evident to the collar and cuffs. The collar patches have some light aging to the golden oakleaves.

Notes: Although un-attributed, there was less than fifty Gauleiters at the time this brown shirt would have been worn. Undertaking careful photographic research, based on the medal loops, and their positioning, might narrow down the original owner.
