    Default Hitler Youth Items

    My father went to the 1937 Boy Scout World Jamboree as a 17 year old Boy Scout. During that trip he toured Europe and went to Berlin. I have 4 items that he bought or traded for at the time. All are like new, unworn. I have 2 armbands one with a circle (the sticker on the inside of this one has fallen off but you can still see the residue from where it was attached) and one with a diamond and white strip around it (this one has the sticker). I have a Hitler Youth Belt Buckle, it has some rust . And a Hitler youth Cap with eagle on front and red piping. None of the are worn, the leather inside of the cap is very clean, like new. I would be interested in any information on these items. Ultimately I want to sell them but I want to know what I have before I do that.

    I also have a number of other interesting German souvenirs he acquired during the trip.

    Beer Coasters (2)
    20 Berlin Pictures
    Liqueur Giant advertising matches
    Berlin Bus Tour Pamphlet and Map
    Social Policy in the New Germany (soft cover book)
    German Youth in a Changing World (hitler youth book)
    Jugend und Heimat (youth and home) magazine July 1937


    His Passport with the Nazi entry stamp into the country.

    Also very interesting is a diary he kept and some letters home, in which there were references to "how good the German boys marched" as well as the ending of the German boy scouts and they are all now Hitler Youth.

    Very interesting stuff.

    Interesting... imagine touring pre-war Nazi Germany as a Boy Scout leader, and then returning as a rifleman in 1944. You just gave me brain food for today.

    Everything looks good to me. You might be better off listing each individual item in the proper sections.

    Welcome to the forum, by the way.

    The H.J. cap is a nice earlier version with the national eagle, and appears to be a fine original. The armband with the stripe is an H.J. armband and also appears to be a nice original. The items are somewhat common and would not bring a high amount of money if sold, perhaps a few hundred dollars for those two things. I would think seriously before selling them unless your situation dictates that you need the funds, as they won't bring that much in terms of money and they are great family history items.

    Lovely items with sentimentality
