Default Hitler Youth Gold Membership Badge for Review

Hi.
I bought a couple of items, one being a Railway type cast aluminium eagle plaque that appears period painted in political colours (not sure if NSDAP or HJ). The other is a goldenHitler Youth membership badge. Having looked on the forum, I was not sure it was original, but it was cheap and the quality looks very good. The main reason is that it is totally devoid of any markings on the reverse. I would value your opinions, please.
Thanks & regards
John

Thanks. Looking now at the black enamel I can see a slight surface dip in the middle of the swastika arms. Never seen that on originals. However, the white enamel has those tiny little flecks of black in it like true ones.
Regards
John
