Rare hitler youth badge?

Article about: I think this could be a rare Hitler youth badge, on the reverse is BM 1/122 and a circle with RZM, help needed.

    Kenny has done his homework. It looks like the maker "BM" did, Possibly,exist but is only known by a specimen or 2 in high end collections. Chances are then very slim that this is another.
    Personally, I have to agree. I don't care for the posted badge. The metal looks to be almost solid brass and the hardware looks newer than it should after 70+ years of age. This one looks to my eyes to be an aged fake.

    That particular spot may be an area of deterioration/damage(?)...but I can't be sure with these photos...I recall a thread where Wilhelm Saris -I believe it was- explains the BM markings ... I had gotten it mixed up with "B" Stuecke (replacement B-Pieces)...
    The reverse pin-plate/needle is seen on period badges as well, including several Deschler Badges in my collection...and condition isn't necessarily an age-issue, it's a storage-issue...
    Personally, I've never held one of these in hand, but I'm intrigued and like a good mystery along with the education, lol...
    cheers, Glenn

    From what I've gathered there is nothing backing up even the 250 or so produced/awarded theory (except for a post war book quote that has apparently been repeated until accepted as fact). It appears there's actually more substance to a figure about 1/10th of that... meaning; as if it wouldn't have been exceedingly rare already with 250 (approx.) produced and/or awarded, what would you say to the more credible and apparently actually substantiated number of 25-30 produced/awarded and how does that make badges marked with a maker already labeled dubious look in the first place?

    Doing a simple google search I easily found another like this one, with the same attachment and markings, on some rubbish site, marked down from over $5000 to $1000 with a best offer option... wouldn't logic dictate that a badge produced in such low numbers would AT LEAST fetch more than a Golden Party Badge, an award produced in the tens of thousands?

    That said; never held or owned one--- seems few ever have, actually.

    I think this might have a chance. The fuzzy rear photos don't help, and I don't know what's going on in the highlighted area. I'd not heard these were bad markings.
    What I am seeing in the highlighted area under full magnification is an area of gold wash that has not been worn away. Matches areas on the back. Possible???? Bob

    But no matter a somewhat higher number; how many actually survived and what quality would such a high ranking award be produced in? Would it linger online at $1000 with a best offer option like that other BM marked badge? I think not.

    I'm surprised to see Hasso von Manteuffel on the list...along with several other notables of advanced age...
