    This is a small, vintage foto of an SS mann. What is unusual about it (and very hard to see) is that there is a Hakenkreuz right below the knot of his tie. I have never seen anything like this before, have you? It sort of looks like a NSDAP membership badge, but again, I have never seen one worn there before. Your thoughts appreciated.

    It is an NSDAP Party membership badge. Not unusual to see.

    Cheers, Ade.

    But have you seen one worn there before? Usually they are worn on the breast, right? Or lower on the tie - maybe.

    It is worn a bit high. I think the cut of the uniform collar and angle of the photo makes it look even more so.

    Cheers, Ade.

    With that style hat, what year would you guess (approx.) the foto is from?

    Certainly post 1936 going by the cap badges.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sorry, but this is incorrect. The regulations for wearing the standard NSDAP membership badge in SS uniform stated that the badge was to be worn on the tie. Only the Golden Party Badge was officially allowed to be worn on the left breast pocket. There is nothing unusual about the position of the badge in this photo.
    Here's Himmler wearing his in exactly the same position.

    I wonder why Himmler, of all people, did not wear a Golden Party Badge. Any thoughts on that?
