Can you identify this?

Article about: I saw this today and even the guy who had it was not sure what it was. It looks like a paper weight to me but is it genuine? Any thoughts?

    Looks genuine to Me,IMO. Seems to be a German political paperweight from 1938. It's way cool,and I wish I had it! William

    I have the opportunity to buy it but I am trying to see if it is real. I do not even know how much it might be worth and neither does the guy who has it. He seems to think that it has something to do with the start of the Nazi party and its growth through the years. However, if the website below is accurate the numbers are off and 3 men started the party in 1919 not 7. I am sure information varies depending on who did the research but I am always leery of an item if I find information that cast doubt on its authenticity. I would rather error on the side of caution.

    I took one more picture of this so you can see the size. If you have any idea what it is I would like to know.

    I too think it is a paper weight. It seems to have an increasing amount of N.S.D.A.P.
    members up until Hitler's election on January 30th 1933 - it's a
    commemorative item !

    The vertical projection on the swastika is the number '1' - or 'Ein' - as in: 'Ein Volk,
    Ein Reich, Ein Fuhrer' - The Germans had a unique way of writing this number,
    so it really looks like the Roman numeral '7'.

    ( The Party Badge that Hitler wore is claimed to be number 7
    for this reason - It is actually badge number 1. )

    Yep-I still think it's just a way cool TR Desk Ornament/Paperweight. Totally original and you may very well look for a longgg time before you see another one like it-if ever! William

    This is one of those items that must be inspected in hand. For me, the work was a little crude for items manufactured in the period. However, it may be the pictures. From the images, I would not buy this.

    I have seen these before and not keen on them, I too would want it in hand but no terribly enthusiastic.

    Best,
