This band is a printed type, with good red coloring, a white field, and the ubiquitous black swastika.

This band is of particular interest as it is inked stamped "NSDAP Partie Berechschaft" on the field.

A nice example here, with an unusual stamping.

This armband is the conventional red cotton type, sewn up the rear and remaining in fine condition.

The field is slightly different than we normally see, being a grosgrain type and having three sets of stitches around the edges. Additionally the swastika, at first glance, appears to be a woven type, but upon further inspection is actually constructed of many individual rows of black stitches. It is very nicely done, although it does look slightly unusual to the glance of a discerning eye.

A nice armband here, and an interesting variant.

ARMBANDS #40567C Gau Level Political Leader's Armband

This Gau Level armband would have been worn by the leader of a main post. It is constructed from wool. Unfortunately hungry moths have had a field day with this piece, leaving quite a number of holes eaten through both sides. They aren't very large holes but they are definitely visible.

This armband is constructed from yellow cotton and is sewn up the rear. Woven in black to the obverse of the band “Deutsche Reichsbahn”.

There is also a rubber stamping directly to the right of the “e” in “Deutsche”, illegible to me but I can clearly see an eagle and swastika.

Excellent. $225.00

This armband is one of the quality woolen types. It is in fine condition throughout, with only a single minuscule moth hole just above the field. It is nice and clean and retains the original bright colors.

It is interesting to note that the original owner must have been a big man, as he has it extended via a piece of nearly matching red wool sewn into the reverse. This alteration is absolutely period.

An outstanding example here.

ARMBANDS #37702C Ortsgruppe Political Block Leader Armband

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. $995.00

ARMBANDS #28719C Ortsgrüppe Political Leader Candidate Armband

This Political Leader Candidate armband is produced with a red wool base.

The center of the armband has a round white satin lined field and on the field is a bevo style weaved black swastika. Both the swastika and the round field are trimmed with yellow thread. This armband is the same as the one that is shown in the Angolia SA Book on page 64, upper, in color.
