A Hitlerjugend Leistungsabzeichen in Silber by RZM M1/101 (Gustav Brehmer, Markneukirchen). The Hitler Youth Proficiency Badge was instituted in June 1934 and was awarded to HJ members who successfully passed a four-part aptitude test in athletics (sports), shooting (air-rifle), field exercises and political knowledge. The iron class was awarded to DJ and HJ members up to the age of 15, the bronze class was awarded to sixteen year old HJ members and the silver class was awarded to seventeen year old HJ members. It is constructed out of a die-struck zinc base that has been silver washed. The obverse depicts an off centered mobile swastika that is encircled by: “Für Leistungen in der H.J.” (For Proficiency in the H.J.) above a Tyr-rune. The full back reverse is maker marked “RZM M1/101” (KGustav Brehmer, Markneukirchen). It has a soldered on round plate tombak pin assembly that remains in well working condition. Nice silver wash remains! It measures 2 inches high by 1 3/16 inches wide. A prized piece needed in most HJ collections!
