Title NSKK driver's sleeve insignia, 1st pattern
Nationality German
Period mid-1930s
Price £40.00

The NSKK were the motorised units of the SA, using trucks, motorcycles and sidecar motorcycles. They were used principally in the run-up to the war as a miiltary driving school to prepare young men for service with the forces. They wer also used in the pre-war period to move SA units rapidly around Germany when the Reds needed discomforting!

It is in the form of a rayon diamond with a machine woven aluminium braid eagle within a truck wheel and was worn on the lower left sleeve. This has been worn, but it is in good shape for its age. There are some glue marks on the back where it has perhaps been stuck on a board at some stage.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

testimonials

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
