This manufacture of the Hitler Youth Diamond in Gold with Oakleaves is the original manufacture type awarded to members of the Hitler Youth. Initially there was thought to have only been approximately 250 of these awards. Today it is accepted that there was either far more than 250 awards made, or that a greater number had been manufactured and numbered ready to be awarded.
