Nürnberg Party Rally

Third Reich Postal Stationery

This series was issued on 1 September 1937 to commemorate the Nazi Party Rally in Nürnberg.

  • The cards depict:
  • /01 — Inspection of the SA
  • /02 — Labor Corps (R.A.D.) marching
  • /03 — SA marching
  • /04 — Political leaders marching
  • /05 — N.S.K.K. Motorcycle Rally
  • /06 — SS Marching
  • /07 — Hitler Jugend (Hitler Youth) bugler at Jugend camp
  • /08 — Hitler’s Ju-52 over Nürnberg

The stamp design is similar to MiNr 646, 647, 648, and 650.  Of note, the souvenir stamp sheet (MiNr Block 11 containing four MiNr 650 stamps) issued to commemorate the same event features a “REICHSPATEITAG NÜRNBERG 1937” overprint on the stamp, yet the commemorative postcard omits the overprint.

Also shown is the original envelope in which the set was purchased.
