N022277 DJ MINIATURE PROFICIENCY BADGE IN SILVER. (Leistungsabzeichen des DJ)

BACKGROUND: In an attempt to promote physical fitness, the "Leistungsabzeichen des Deutschen Jungvolks" (Proficiency-badge of-the German Young-people), was introduced by Reichsjugendführer Baldur von Schirach on September 26TH, 1935, for award to DJ members from the ages of twelve to fourteen years old, after successful completion of the prescribed tests. The testing for the award of the badge included military-like training exercises and political indoctrination. The DJ Proficiency badge was issued in only one grade, and bestowal was discontinued in 1944. As with most awards, a miniature, lapel version was also authorized for wear.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A silver-colored, die struck alloy award in the form of a "Sig" rune, roughly 21mm tall. To the center of the rune is a raised, mobile swastika, which is surrounded by the pseudo-runic script "Für Leistungen Im D.J." (For Proficiency In-the German Young-people). Complete with original pinback device. RZM marked.

GRADE ****                             PRICE $69.00
