Or stamped on to decieve to make 2000% on $1 apiece
thrift store frames. I am not convinced.........
Well, frame may be a period piece but NSDAP stamp is modern. It is stamped with the same letters as German dogtags. I do not see any point to stamp a frame in that way.
I've seen Nazi Party property stamps on furniture, and specific Unit Stamps but have never seen a simple and lonely "NSDAP" stamping such as this. And although well-constructed indeed, as a collector I would consider this dubious...In my experience, it's just not the way these items would normally be marked...The Swiss are also known to overengineer in this manner...just my opinion of course, others may disagree...
Maybe the frame was stamped due to it being property of the NSDAP? To show ownership belonged to the party, like how school mark items which they own? I'd think that could be possible. However, I am by no means saying this is the case in the original post. I have never seen or heard of one so therefore can not comment on its authenticity. I just don't have a good feeling about these. Not for me. The fact the dates are so far apart makes me think something is off as well.
Without rock solid provenance, these are just old frames. Anything like this manufactured for the NSDAP would definitelyly have been approved for manufacture and RZM marked with a manufacturer's code.

Post #3 is that of the Back side of one of these "photo frames"?? Would it be possible to see some views of the whole things-both sides, etc? It just seems rather odd, to see the heavy steel hinges, etc on a photo frame. Are you sure that that is what these actually Are? Or could they be something else altogether? For example, why would the backside end wood be curved like this? And, how were the photo frames supposed to have been displayed? Any signs of a way to hang them or an easel back rest, etc??

Actually look like film holders for a camera
By the looks of the stamping, they had the exact same stamp used on both frames years apart
