ARMBANDS #37702C Ortsgruppe Political Block Leader Armband

This choice armband is of all fine red wool construction, showing no mothing. There are a couple of stains that look like residue from old glue or something; they probably could be removed with little effort. Otherwise the red wool is perfect throughout this band.

This armband is piped in blue cord, indicating an Ortsgruppe rank. Inward from the blue is a gold stripe. In the center is a set of gold oak leaves, measuring 10mm. These oak leaves are bordered with gold stitching matching that seen on the edges.

The center field is of white lined satin with a black lined swastika in the center. There is a pip in the middle of the swastika; the gilding is gone from the surfaces of this insignia. The field and swastika are piped in gold cord.

A very fine armband here that will display wonderfully with other Political Leader memorabilia.

Printed across the armband in two lines of black, highlighted text is "Im Dienste der Sicherheitspoliziei'. This means "In service of the Secret Police"; one can only wonder what sort of services this nefarious group would require.
