Very few collectors of Nazi identity documents are even aware that an eight-page paper version of the Kennkarte
was issued during the Third Reich.
An extremely high percentage (probably 99% or more) of the Kennkarte
or Civilian Identity Document issued by the police in Nazi Germany were of the well-known tear-resistant, once folded, gray "leinen" type containing a front and back cover and two inside pages
. That type of Kennkarte
was replaced with a new 8-page version when supplies of it ran out in some police offices late in the war. Most police offices never exhausted their supply of the old style document before the end of the war, so they never issued even a single example of the 8-page Kennkarte
This particular final version of the Nazi Kennkarte is number B-570451 (A Nr. 0.901791*) issued by the Head of Police in Berlin-Lichterfelde, Germany on 9 August 1944 to Margarethe Koepsel (née Nürnbergl, a postal worker who was born on 14 July 1914 and who had a scar on her left index finger. It was valid through 9 August 1949.
This rare document is complete with its original photo and in good used condition. It was folded once.
The last style 8-page Kennkarten were printed at the Reichsdrückerei in Berlin and were very sophisticated identity documents. They were much more like a passport; printed with a multicolor alteration disclosing back-ground on pages 4 and 5, the center-spread. Pages 2, 6 and 7 were blank (to provide room for additional entries) and page 3 was a facsimile of the printing on the front cover.
