HJMEDALS #36320C Hitler Youth Kreissieger 1939 Badge
This rounded HJ Badge has a off-white enamel center with a bronze border. The border features overlapping laurel leaves. Superimposed over the center area and bottom area is an open-winged eagle that looks to the viewer’s right and clasps a gearwheel device. Applied to the gearwheel is an enamel Hitler Youth badge. The enamel is still in excellent condition throughout the badge with its red, white, copper and black swastika.
The purpose of the award “Kreissieger” which would basically mean “Area Winner” is around the enamel top border and below the eagle’s wings is the date that that prize badge was won, “1939”. The reverse of the badge has the raised name of the maker and location, “Ferd. Wagner / Pforzheim”. A nice example here that would display well with other Hitler Youth items.

HJMEDALS #36151C Hitler Youth Kreissieger 1938 Award Badge
This 1938 HJ Kreissieger Award Badge is in fine condition throughout. It has a fine brass cast throughout the outside border and as well as to the applied eagle in the center. The border features a wreath of overlapping oak leaves running completely around. Inside is white enamel which at the bottom area has the date of the award, “1938” and at the top area indicates that it is an area prize winner, “Kreissieger”. The superimposed eagle is of all brass having outstanding detail throughout his head, breast feathering, wing feathering and talons. In his talons he clutches a gearwheel device and applied over the gearwheel is an enamel Hitler Youth insignia.
This insignia has a small scrape just to the right of the swastika but there does not appear to be any material missing. The insignia looks great with its red, white, silver and black center swastika. The reverse of the badge has a barrel hinge with tapered flat pin. The catch is the style that is soldered directly to the metal. The reverse of the medal is stamped with the maker information, “E. Bremmer, Markneukirchen”. A fine original badge here, one which would make a nice addition to a Youth collection.
Excellent Plus. $395.00
