Hi there and thanks for the addition. Do you have more paperwork for this girl by any chance?
no probs! Thanks again for the addition
thanks a lot for your reply.
I've got a little question, maybe you could help me?? Could you tell me, how many honour-badges has been awarded?
I think that the number of my badge 112612 is quite high. Have you ever seen a higher number like mine before?
I'm very afraid about your answer!
kind regards send you
Applications for the award of the HJ Ehrenzeichen were stopped in 1939 because it was considered that people had had sufficient time by then to send up the paperwork. The only exceptions to that cutoff date were those personnel who met the qualification requirements in the following countries/territories: Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, Memel, Romania, Elsass-Lothringen, Eupen-Malmedy, Südtirol, Südsteiermark and Südkärnten. The award criteria in those countries/territories were different to those within the Reich so the number of badges awarded is likely to have been quite limited.
No exact total number of badges awarded is known but the consensus is that this is likely to be around the 125,000 mark. The highest number I have seen (on paperwork) is 113346 but I have seen a badge with a number around 122,000 on the forum.
To my knowledge the Bundesarchiv doesn't have any lists. They are considered lost/destroyed. They may well have documents that will lead indirectly to the answer on some badges though of course. Gebietsbefehle, Bannbefehle, youth magazines, etc etc I've found some information from those too but the bulk of the information comes from ID documents, achievement books, letters and Besitzzeugnisse.
No probs mole-hunter
