Estimated market value:
The Achievement Badge in Silver was introduced in 1937 and it was awarded at an annual championship to an individual in every branch of sport. The Badge was originally established by the National Socialist Physical Training League (NSRL) and it was later adopted by the NSRL's predecessor, the German National Physical Education Union (DRL).
There are two versions of the Achievement Badge in Silver. One badge features the year of issue on the obverse, the other does not. There is also a version of the badge that was produced out of cloth. The cloth badge was worn on the physical fitness kit of the recipient.
The Silver Badge (with year, 1937-1944) was awarded to individuals who had participated in the last round of any German sports championship.
The Silver Badge (without year) was awarded to individuals who successfully represented Germany in an international sporting competition.
