--------------------------------

Political tokens served a variety of purposes such as propaganda in your pocket and reminders to vote, and they also served to legitimize campaign donations at political rallies. The turmoil of post World War I Germany brought on by the economic crises and multiple failed governments contributed to the rise of increasingly radical and agressive political parties of which the NSDAP was only one. One law meant to lower the level of conflict forbid parties from collecting donations at political rallies on the theory that restricting the flow of donations would help weaken the influence of the parties. They responded with a variety of ways to continue the cash flow, typically relying on the sale of items such as postcards, pamphlets, etc. Sales of things were legal.

Not all election tokens featured Hitler. The April 24, 1932 Prussian state elections were held following Hindenburg's ban of the SA and SS military arms of the NSDAP. Military units of other political parties were banned as well, but the real intention was controlling the violence perpetrated by the Nazis. Perhaps an answer to Hindenburg (or maybe just evidence of the problem), the Prussian arm of the party issued a militant aluminum token. The obverse pictures a nude male slaying a three-headed snake. The reverse declares "Fight lies, deceit, and treason. Action liberates. Vote List 8, April 24, 1932."
