There are four versions of standard Reisepässe
or passports dating back to the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler. The earliest type (Type 1) had a Weimar eagle on the front cover but Nazi eagle and swastika stamps on the inside. By May of 1936, the standard Reisepass
(Type 2) had the Weimar eagle replaced with a Hoheitszeichen
(eagle and swastika) between the words Deutsches Reich
. Later, (Type 3) the Hoheitszeichen had been moved to the top of the front cover and there was a passport serial number stamped all the way through the front and back covers and the internal 32 pages. Type 4 (not shown) did away with the perforated numbers and had the passport number printed at the bottom of the front cover and on each subsequent page making it much more difficult to counterfeit. They were all identical in that each page had a alteration disclosing background, they all contained the same data, and all were issued by the Polizeipräsident or Head of the Police

The original Deutsches Reich Reisepass or German National Passport belonged to a pretty lady called Irene Ristl (née Reich), born in Budapest on 24 July 1898. When this passport number 163797 was issued on 28 July 1939 she lived in Wien (Vienna, the second largest city of Greater Germany) and listed her occupation as im Haushalt meaning she was employed as domestic help.
The passport consists of an olive green cover bearing the words DEUTSCHES REICH REISEPASS beneath a large eagle and swastika Hoheitszeichen or National Emblem. While this 4-3/8 x 6-1/2 inch, 32-page passport was valid until 27 July 1944, brown haired and grey-brown eyed Mrs. Ristl never used it - it has no border stamps or currency exchange stamps.
Interestingly, no husband is mentioned in this Nazi passport, but she did have a son, Oswald born on 26 October 1932.
Good used condition with original ID photo.
