A very unusual, high quality early variant here.

Mint. $195.00

ARMBANDS #43693C Early Wool SS Armband with Cloth Reichsführer Label

This armband is constructed fo fine red wool that remains clean and unfaded. There are a few tiny moth nips in the wool which are hard to see, one on the upper right edge and the other on the reverse left upper edge. This band is sewn up the back.

ARMBANDS #43691C Unusual Hitler Youth Armband Variant

This Hitler Youth Armband remains in choice condition. It has two red outer stripes and a white central stripe.

Separately sewn to the band is the standard white HJ diamond. What is unusual is that the swastika is printed as opposed to being woven; I can't recall seeing this in the past and assume it is a late style of band.

The original paper issue tag remains inside of the band. It is marked "226" and has run number of "393316".

An interesting HJ variant here.

Mint. $175.00

Excellent Plus. $250.00

ARMBANDS #43686C Sicherheitspolizei Armband

This armband is a rarely seen type and I would think quite desirable. It is constructed from green cotton and has a nice black hem that runs around the edges.

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.

This band shows age and wear but remains in collectible condition. A great, rarely seen example here.

Excellent Plus. $495.00

ARMBANDS #43685C Sicherheitspolizei Armband with Eagle Stamping

This Secret Police Armband is constructed of green cotton.

Printed in black on the band in two lines are the words "Im Deinste der Sicherhetspolizei". There is a rubber stamp of an eagle surrounded by illegible writing; presumably it has something to do with the SD.

The reverse is stamped "NSDAP". This band remains in perfect condition, showing only normal age.

Excellent Plus. $495.00

ARMBANDS #43590 Wool NSDAP / SA Armband

This wool armband looks to have been worn, but it is a high quality example and is free of moth damage. The original red color is unfaded.

It is interesting to note that there is a special hem or seam at the edges, something I have not seen in the past. Sewn to center of the band has the usual white field with applied swastika, both in grosgrain. There is a black tacking stitch on the upper edge of the band.

This is most likely a very early example.

Near Mint. $250.00

ARMBANDS #43588 NSDAP / SA Armband with Stamping

This printed armband remains in nice condition and is sewn up the back. The coloring throughout the band remains good and the field is unsoiled.

The band has an interesting fairly clear rubber stamping on the field. The stamp has a very clear Party eagle clutching a wreathed swastika, ringed by some mostly legible text. Perhaps the next owner will scrutinize it further.

A good, basic band here, with a desirable period stamping.

Excellent Plus. $195.00

ARMBANDS #43587 NSDAP / SA Armband with Stahlhelm Stamp

This armband has excellent, unfaded red cotton construction and is sewn up the rear. The field and woven swastika are separately applied components.

It is interesting to note there is a rubber stamping on this band, featuring a stahlhelm in the center. It is possible to make out the front "fronk" in the stamping, normally the word associated with a Stahlhelm organization. This band is probably a very early example.

A high quality band here, with a neat stamping.

Excellent Plus. $250.00

ARMBANDS #43586 Unusual NSDAP Armband with Stamping

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.

The field is separately applied with the outline of a swastika in the center. There is a large black "6" printed at the top of the swastika and "2731" in purple ink at the bottom. 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.

Excellent Plus. $225.00

ARMBANDS #43585 Early Wool SS Armband

This wool armband is in somewhat worn condition, but is free of moth damage and the wool remains reasonably nice.

The band has the black grosgrain edge trim typical of the type. The field and swastika are separately applied components. There are a number of tacking threads left on the edges of this band.

A good, early SS Armband here, one that really talks to you.

Excellent Plus. $695.00

ARMBANDS #43606 Special Police Armband

This armband appears to be something that was worn for specific special police duty as it is quite elaborate and appears to have been made for a certain event. The armband is made of a white cotton material which is more substantial than the normal cotton fabric. The white cotton shows a little minor soiling from age but still remains in nice condition. The armband has two sets of dual bullion cord that run near the edges of both sides. In the center is a separately sewn police insignia. This insignia is of green woven material on a background of cotton. The eagle features the triple oak leaf wreath with the open winged eagle looking to the viewer's left. The eagle grasp a wreath which has a black swastika. This armband is sewn up the rear. A very nice piece here which I believe to be quite rare.

Excellent Plus. $275.00

ARMBANDS #43605 Police Interpretor Armband

This is a rarely seen armband which should go well with a police collection. The armband is of green cotton being sewn up the rear. It shows a few stains here and there but nothing that is too bad. Printed in two line of the obverse of the armband is "Polilzei / Dolmetscher". This word means interpreter and it makes sense with the amount of countries being occupied and their inhabitants being brought into Germany and other Third Reich areas there must have been some language barriers along with the influx of people. It makes sense that the police need an interpreter to handle interrogations or other duties.

Excellent. $225.00

ARMBANDS #43604 Assistant to Police Armband

This armband is of white cotton being sewn upi the rear. It shows some very minor soiling and seems to have a bit of fading to the printed text but it is not bad. The armband is printed with "Hilfspolizei". Below this is a stamping which appears to contain and eagle in the center which may have been representative of the town from which the armband comes. It is possible to see some of the wording in the stamping which seems to indicate the word "Oberburgermeister" as well as the town represented which I cannot read. A good armband here for those of you interested in police related items.

Excellent. $225.00

ARMBANDS #43601 Railway Police Armband

This armband is constructed of lined gray cotton and is sewn up the back.

Printed on the front of the band in an oval is "Bahn- / Polizei". Obviously this band was worn by Railway Police. These men had many duties but were mainly shouting "PAPERS, PLEASE!" at furtive looking passengers.

Quite a rare armband here.

Excellent Plus. $295.00

ARMBANDS #43598 Reichsjustizverwaltung Armband

This high quality armband is thinner than most we see. It is constructed of thick, dark green cotton and trimmed with gold cord.

Woven in gold at the center of the band is an open-winged Justice eagle clutching a wreathed swastika. Below the bird is the word "Reichsjustizverwaltung" which means something akin to "Administration of Justice" or "Judicial Adminstration". Presumably it was worn by a bailiff or some other species of courthouse denizen.

An outstanding armband here, only rarely seen.

Near Mint. $495.00

ARMBANDS #43596 Red Cross Armband

This Red Cross Armband is constructed of lined cotton and is more substantial than most bands of this type. it shows some age but remains in nearly perfect condition. It is sewn up the rear.

Woven to the center of the band is a large red cross. Precisely stamped to the left of the cross is a crisp circle containing a Wehrmacht eagle with a wreathed swastika and the words "Kommisstat der Freiwilligen Krankenpflege" which means this band was worn by a nurse.

A very nice Red Cross example here, and the first of the type I have seen.

Excellent Plus. $225.00

ARMBANDS #43595 Red Cross Armband

This armband is constructed of white cotton and is sewn up the rear. There are what look to be a few old masking tape stains on the edges, but it is in otherwise good condition.

Woven in the center of the band is a red cross. Surrounding the red cross, in black, are the words "Freiw. Sanitätskolonnen vom Roten Kreuz", or "Volunteer Red Cross Medical Convoy".

Good Plus. $85.00

A very neat, rarely seen variation here.

Excellent. $150.00

In the center is a white lined satin field with a separately applied black satin mobile swastika. Both the field and the swastika are outlined in a fine yellow braid.

This armband is clean and pristine and about as nice as they come.

Mint Minus. $795.00

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.

Mint Minus. $795.00

An interesting armband here, with a scarce stamp.

Excellent. $135.00

ARMBANDS #43245 SA / NSDAP Armband

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

ARMBANDS #40336 Gau Level Political Leader's Armband

This Political Leader's Armband is constructed of red wool and is sewn up the rear. This band shows period wear but has no moth holes. There are in fact loose threads along the edges, indicating it was most likely removed from a tunic.

The band is fitted with carmine colored, Gau-Level piping on the edges. Inside the piping are 7mm brocade oak leaves. These oak leaves are flanked by 1mm gold stripes. The white grosgrain field has gold piping. The separately applied black swastika also has matching gold piping. The field has some mild soiling but nothing too bad.

A very fine example here, showing some period wear but no abuse.

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.
