Hitler Youth proficiency in silver insignia with RZM label intact
Condition report: (1-) near mint
This badge was founded by Balder von Schirach, the Reich Youth Leader, to reward members of the Hitler Youth for demonstrating proficiency in physical fitness and political knowledge. The recipients were chosen and approved by the Reich Youth Leader.
Each class of badge was further divided into an associated grade of proficiency, A, B, or C. The reverse of the badge was infrequently stamped with the grade of proficiency.
The obverse inscription translates to "For Proficiency in the HJ", and the reverse of each badge is numbered.
The Silver Badge was awarded to 17 or older Hitler Youth members for passing the political and physical fitness tests.
