    Default RDB Collection by Gefreiter Otto

    I have recently started a small collection focused on the RDB "Reichsbund der Deutschen Beamten" (State League of German Public Officials) that included all the civilian personnel who managed the intricate and highly complex administrative fabric of the Reich.

    This organization was established towards the end of 1933, within the NSDAP and its objective was the administrative control of all the state organizations, the so-called Gleichschaltung (synchronization) to serve the interests of the Reich.

    I hope you like it, little by little I will put all my pieces.

    Postcard-size photograph of an RDB member and his family.
    The young soldier in the photograph has turned out to be a member of the Volkssturm, specifically a Kompanieführer ( Head of Company )

    RDB Collection by Gefreiter Otto

    The head of the family, an Official member of the RDB as attested by his insignia, is a World War I veteran wearing a Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer "German Cross of Honor 1914/18" button pin.

    Here you have the RDB identification card of the 2nd model, more attractive and somewhat more elaborate than the first type.

    This model appears from 1941 to 1942.

    It is a card measuring 13cm by 9.08cm, on cardboard and with a beautiful emblem of the RDB insignia.

    RDB Collection by Gefreiter Otto

    At the end of 1942, the RDB already had more than 1.800.000 members.

    The card belonged to Karl Huster, barely 16 years old and Student.

    Approximate translation of the document:

    This card serves as identification for members of the RDB.
    It must be kept with care, its loss must be notified immediately to the RDB
    The fraudulent use in the management of social benefits of this identification will be immediately reported to the RDB.
    In the event of death, the owner of this card must have the membership fees up to date to enjoy all the social benefits


    These cards usually have a single number at the bottom that I don't even know what they meant.

    Administrative Region or similar?

    So far I have seen these numbers:

    1 - Kempten "Gau Westmark" - Dresden "Gau Sachsen"
    2 - Auerbach "Gau Sachsen"
    3 - Minden "Westfalen-Nord"
    10 - Dirschau "Danzig – Westpreußen"
    13 - Halle "Gau Sachsen"

    Ralph, thank you for the reply to my question. I have never seen an SA, pin worn on the tie before. mostly a party pin on the tie. was this practice common? was he an SA man, or just a supporter? courious? toot.
