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
