    The standard one, small or large doesn't matter. The area I live in has seen lots of these camps in the 1930-1940 period, 19 to be exact. Most of these are located in fields but one (a RADwJ one) was located in a forest which I completely hunted out with a metal detector. Had the privilege to find many relics including porcelain with the marking you see in my avatar. One of those patches would be a great addition to my collection.

    Wow this is a great thread, thank you for taking the time, I own the set of Sport and the Third Riech books and they are always a pleasure to look at, my favorite piece that I own is this HJ sport shirt, I am sure you will go into detail about these at some point also.

    YES!! Nice shirt with NSRL/DRL eagle. The governing body before the DRL was the DRA then the NSRL witch designed the eagle you see there and when the DRL took over they adopted the eagle design also. Some times these wraps on the shirt are snapped on so they can be removed, is yours snapped on?

    The common shirts you will find are the HJ, Police, Luftwaffe and HEER these range from $100 to $300. Often you will find shirts with patches put on later so it is still important to check the stitching holding the patch on with a black light. The more patches on it the more valuable it can be. Some times you will see up to 4 or more patches in the bottom left for awards, events or clubs that that person belonged to.

    You will find many versions or makes of insignia used for sports but some were also used for non-sport related armbands and uniforms. Such as the square swastika that is also the same patch used on the HJ armbands and the diamonds are also used on the main uniform.

    This is vary rare and I have seen 3, 2 of witch I own. This is the 1st approved design for the HJ before the diamond, so if you are just a HJ collector this is a must have. This one is chain stitched.

    These in this Photo are on there way to me soon but till then what you have here are several different make and sizes of HJ diamonds along with a Bevo version of the HJ.
    You also have the color cuff titles, I do not know much about these but I do know there is a Ski one that many consider one of the most elusive 3rd Reich patches, I did recently see one sell at auction these are also heavily copied There are 4, a Red, Green, Yellow and white. Then you have the DJ, this is another one that I have only seen 2 of.

    I have been told before that I should not do things like this because I will create competition. This is true but I am interested in seeing what is yet to be found, and help others and in the meantime maybe some one that sees this has something that I need and will help me. So go for it Hummel and any help you need just ask and I will do what I can to help.
