Here we have a DRL (Deutscher Reichsbund für Leibesübungen - German National Union for Physical Training). The silver grade DRL badge was awarded to men and women between the ages of 18-32 who passed the national fitness test for a total of eight years or individuals between the ages of 32-40 who passed the fitness test during a 12 month period. It is constructed out of a die struck bronze base that has been silver washed and black burnished. The oval shaped obverse depicts a centrally placed “DRL” in stylized letters which is surrounded by an oak leaf wreath which is tied together at the bottom with a ribbon and swastika. The reverse correctly displays a silvered; soldered block hinge, soldered flat wire catch and flat wire pin. It is also marked “DRGM 35269” and “Wernstein Jena”. It continues to retain silver wash and nicely burnished details! It measures approximately 1 ½ inches wide by 1 7/8 inches tall. A great display piece!
