Here we have a Deutsches Jungvolk Leistungsabzeichen by RZM M1/72 (Fritz Zimmermann, Stuttgart). The DJ Proficiency Badge was introduced on 26th September 1935 (DJ members were previously eligible for the Iron HJ Proficiency badge on June 1934) and was awarded to DJ members who successfully passed a four-part aptitude test in athletics (sports), shooting (air-rifle), field exercises and political knowledge. The DJ Proficiency badge was issued in only one grade and was discontinued in 1944. It is constructed out of a die struck zinc-alloy base that had been silver washed. The obverse depicts a centrally placed mobile swastika surrounded by “Für Leistungen in der D.J.” (For Proficiency in the D.J.) and is all above a Sig-rune. The full back reverse features a soldered on square plate pin assembly that remains in well working condition. It is also maker marked “RZM M1/72” (Fritz Zimmermann, Stuttgart). It measures approximalte1 ¾ inches tall by 1 3/16 inches wide. A nice badge!
