Hi , I am terrible at getting the correct grades right on these(Kreis level?) but I will go as far as saying that it looks like a good NSDAP collar tab to me. I'm sure Bob Coleman or Hpl with their fountains of knowledge will give you the full details! Leon.

It's an NSDAP Kreis-level "Bereichsleiter" tab...A regional director for the Party. I'm seeing one for sale on E-Militaria for $275, and another on Ulric's for $275 as well...which seems expensive to me...but then I don't collect these, either...
I think the rank is Bereichsleiter (region leader), it looks honest but i'm no expert!..

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Thanks guys for your prompt replies.
The response you have received is correct. This is a Kreisbereichsleiter. Here is a mounted set on the double breasted tunic of a Kreisleiter with the pay grade of Bereichsleiter. The final pattern political insignia had the collar tabs as the paygrade and the armband indicating the wearer's position.

Thanks Bob for your confirmation, but your image does not seem to be attached to your post.
