Spotted this on another site and was reminded of Jo Rivett's "surfboard" thread: http://www.hj-research.com/forum/f24/hitler-youth-achievement-badges-leistungsabzeichen-marked-s-5649/
The badge below looks okay to me but can you see what looks like a surfboard? and there's that very rough and...

I read at a thread here, there are some M1/101 achievement badges fakes on market today. I have a M1/101 and a M1/35 I purchased some years ago, and I'd like to know your opinions about they:
I was able to link Gustav Brehmer with the early unmarked Leistungsabzeichen, as well as those only B-marked. With 100% certainty. There is a rather easy to spot obverse die fault on all of them.
I made a micro composite image of the impressed number 4 on the M1/101 marked badge, (14439) as...

This is the running list of HJ membership badge makers. As new confirmed makers come in they will be added to this thread.
Note: to be included into this list the maker must be shown in a primary source and/or the badge must be fully discussed.
Clyde Davis has Authenticated them as being genuine (page 29, Vol 21 N°2 of the two part series about HJ-Leistungsabzeichen in the Military Advisor.) A few members here have posted pictures to a few made either By M1/35 or M1/101. I don't agree with him on this issue, and will try and show you...
How would you go about saying if this one was original or not? I know that minis were not Numbered, either with the N° or a B, but are there also fakes of these known? (21,32mm x 13,44mm ~ 0,8997gr.) What do these sell for today ?
I got this piece recently and would appreciate your input. It is maker marked for M1/101 and lacks a number. As there are apparently copies of this maker around, I thought I'd best ask.
Thank you for your help.

Are you aware of fakes of the HJ achievement badge by M1/101? If so it would be good to see some pictures.
Sind Euch Kopien von HJ Leistungsabzeichen vom Hersteller M1/101 bekannt ?
Wenn ja wäre es super wenn ich mal ein paar Bilder sehen könnte.
Gustav Brehmer, Markneukirchen - RZM manufacturer M1/101
This company was one of the manufacturers of the HJ Leistungsabzeichen (achievement badge) using RZM number M1/101.
The company of Gustav Brehmer was founded in 1871 in the town of Markneukirchen in Saxony and became one of the premier...
Did the proficency badge ever have a thin pin that is hinged? It is similar to the set up on war badges. I have one where the hinge mount divides the serial number. The number seems to be partially covered by the hinge. The number 49 is clear then there appears to be a patially obscured 3...
