SMGP-479 HJ Kreissieger 1938 *SOLD


Out of stock


Outside of the chip in the HJ diamond, the condition is fantastic. G. Brehmer Markneukirchen

“This piece was given to the winner of the local Competition of the Reichsberufswettkampf or Work Competition.
The competition started in 1934 targeting the youth, who were learning about a profession, like blacksmith, butcher, etc.
There were badges in 1934 and 1935 (well, more than badges, let’s called them Tinnies), they are really common. The badge changed in 1936, and in 1938 the competition was open also for NON HJ members and ages.
For 1938 we find 3 badges: Kreissieger (local winner), Gausieger (Gau winner) and Reichssieger. All of the badges were made by Brehmer.
For 1939, the badges were the same as 1938. The Kreissieger were made by Aurich (my favorites along with 1938 Brehmer), Tham and Wagner. The Gausieger and Reichssieger were made by Brehmer.
The competition stopped because the war, but came back again in 1944 with only Gausieger and Reichssieger made by Brehmer.
This means that there were no competitions in 1940, 41, 42 and 43 (so no badges) and also there is NO Kreissieger in 1944. ”
