This is most likely a very early example.

This cotton armband is the first of its type I have seen and I am unfamiliar with its purpose. It is sewn up the back.

In the very center is an open winged Party eagle with a wreathed swastika, surrounded by text that seems to imply this might be some type of sports band.

A very unusual period band here that bears further research.

This armband is quite unusual and the first of the type I can recall seeing. It is constructed of red cotton on the obverse, with a printed field and swastika.

The reverse of sewn-on white cloth, making this band double sided. There are two holes on each end of the band where it apparently once had buttons or clips that held it in place. This is a very unusual style but absolutely, 100% original. There is a name inked on the the reverse that looks to have been crossed out.

A very neat, rarely seen variation here.

Excellent. $150.00

ARMBANDS #29043 Political Leader's Armband

This impressive Political Leader's Armband still has its very fine red colors. There is one tiny pinhole that is a few inches to the left of the field but it is so small that it hardly shows. The rest of the wool surface looks good. This armband is not sewn up the rear. At the two edges of the armband there is the wine color cord which signifies a Gau level political leader. Inward from the wine piping is a set of brocade oak leaves which measures about 12 or 13 centimeters.

In the center is a lined satin white field to which there is a separately applied black satin swastika. Both the field and the swastika are bordered in thin yellow cord. In the inside, although it is faint to see, the black arrow with the word, “Ober” is still there indicating which direction the armband is to be worn.

A very fine example here and gau level armbands are difficult to come by. This example would have been worn by an administrative polictial leader of a post, a warden, or a cell official.

An interesting armband here, with a scarce stamp.

Excellent. $135.00

This armband is an all printed type, with the standard red cotton construction and sewn up the back.

A good, basic example here.

Excellent. $50.00

ARMBANDS #42792C Bahnhofswache Armband
