    Eagle used on Hitler Youth community buildings (HJ-Heimsymbol)

    At WAF a member (Planet) showed a great symbol, which was used at homes for the HJ (HJ-Heim). It were out thoughts to show it also here at the HJ-forum. Thomas did send me the related photos. I did add an actual official note and a few photographs of the symbol in use.

    October 22, 1937
    this symbol was shown in the "Amtliches Nachrichtenblatt des Jugendführers des Deutschen Reichs und der Reichsjugendführung der NSDAP" (V/24)
    with the title "use of the HJ-Heimsymbol". The shown size is an actually made one(cast material being about 64 cm and with a weight of about 50 lbs, which is really heavy).
    A sample (Muster) was 15.0x15.0 cm in size. It was allowed to be made from stone, metal as well as wood. The areal-architect from the HJ was responsible.
    The size tells it must be for a quite large building, as the size depended on the size, material and architectonic structure for the building. Those who brought together the funds
    for the "home", must have had a lot of money, to have the shown eagle-symbol made. The symbol was found at Stade in Germany.

    WOW, very cool.
    I like A LOTT!

    For these symbols, as I guess they are quite scarce, one must have a very large wallet to obtain one.....? Any prize indication?

    A must have in an advanced collection IMO, that is if your wallet is big enough and or you are willing to make the sacrifice.

    thx for sharing,
