1932 First Hitler Youth Day Badge K000022


Potsdam Badge Bronze Grade

 The Potsdam Badge came in both Silver Grade and Bronze Grade, I cannot find any significance to one over the other. I am pleased to offer this bronze grade Potsdam Badge today and hopefully you will agree it is a significant award for the Hitler Youth.  The badge is ≈ 48 mm in height and ≈ 22.5 mm in width.  It is solid and manufactured from a non ferrous material.  The reverse of this badge is filed to even out the surface and has a safety pin type catch affixed to the reverse with a welded disk.  This badge was manufactured by  HOFFSTÄTTER  BONN and it is also GES. GESCH. Marked.  The front of the badge has an N on one side of the Sword Grip and an S on the other side.  Stamped vertically on left side side of the Sword Blade is I. REICH'S and on the right side of the Sword Blade it is stamped JUGENDTAG and the date 1932 ( National Socialist 1st National Youth Day 1932 ).  This badge has nice uniform darkening to the front surface which only enhances the overall definition of the Sword, Wreath and Swastika.

The award was given for participation in the "great" rally of HJ & BDM on 2nd October 1932.  Now picture this more than 100,000 HJ and BDM marching in the rally in Potsdam.  The Rally started at 11:00 AM and it took seven hours to past the saluting base.   I am certain there was a ton of propaganda points chalked up for the NSDAP at  that rally.
