Quality is very poor. Not a III Reich piece in my opinion.
I agree the quality is not there and I have also never seen that design used for period cufflinks.
Definitely 4th Reich garbage. Another total fantasy item manufactured to sell to the unknowing. The concept of enamel cufflinks is not practical. They would become chipped due to normal usage.

All thanks for answers.
Agreed, far from the quality one would expect of period examples. Stay clear maxrsx.
Currently working on several KZ related projects, including items for the USHMM, Groß-Rosen Museum and various private concerns and studies. Available as a guide to KZ sites, contact for details.

After the seizure of power there was actually an order prohibiting such gaudy nationalistic items. The term was "Nationaler Kitsch"...as it cheapened the symbols of the Party...
I have no problems with this cufflinks - look for me like good period (early) ones. Pre may 1933 - the law against "Nationaler Kitsch" came out because of this very cheap made items in may 33.
Here a period advert for similiar ones from 1932:
They look pretty poor to me, have a look at the - on either side of the "DAP" one is twice the size of the other, I can't see that being accepted to well. The cuff links in the image above look more uniform to me. I've never seen cuff links like this but I wouldn't buy the ones posted here for my collection.
Sorry, althoug bad craftmanship for me without doubt period ones.
Here a example of sure period ones on the original cardboard, made in Pforzheim, about 70 km from my home:
