ARMBANDS #45621 NSDAP / SA Armband

This armband is in nice condition throughout retaining its original bright red cotton color.

In the center is a separately sewn white field and on the field is a separately sewn Bevo sewn black swastika. The armband is sewn up the rear.

A good early example here.

Excellent Plus. $185.00

ARMBANDS #45655 Hitler Youth Larger Size Armband

This armband is wider than we normally see. The width of the armband is 5 inches whereas normally armbands are 4 inches.

The armband is apparently a later type as it is a printed type showing the two red sides of the armband with a white stripe in the middle and in the center is a diamond with black printed swastika.

The armband is open in the back. I suspect that this type of armband may have been used on a greatcoat.

Near Mint. $100.00

ARMBANDS #45690 Wehrmacht In Service Armband

This in service armband is of yellow cotton still being in excellent condition and sewn up the rear.

Bevo woven into the obverse is an open winged eagle which clutches a wreathed swastika.

On either side of the wreath there are rubber stampings featuring open winged eagles with swastikas and the name of a group around the eagle.

A nice armband here particularly with the rubber stampings.

Excellent Plus. $125.00

ARMBANDS #45685 Occupation Forces Police Armband

This armband is not seen very much and it represents the military government police that were in charge immediately after the war was over during the occupation.

The armband is of white cotton showing some soiling and minor usage. It is printed on one side of the obverse of the armband “M. G. / Police - M. R. Polizei”. I assume the German version and the American version to describe the police was done so that the local citizenry understood the authority of the wearer.

An interesting armband to add to a police collection.

Excellent. $175.00

ARMBANDS #45688 Political Kreisleiter

This kreisleiter armband is of all red wool construction and is in perfect condition with no mothing. It is sewn up the rear.

The edges of the armband have the white cord designating kreisleiter and leader of a department. Below the white cords are 16 millimeter gold oak leaves on each edge. The center area has a separately applied lined white field with a black swastika trimmed white gold thread borders which also appear around the field.

This armband still has the original tack threads where it was once on a tunic.

A very fine example here in choice condition.

Near Mint. $795.00

ARMBANDS #45686 NSKOV Official’s Armband

This NSKOV official’s armband is quite rare and is of highest quality. It is produced of a dark blue black wool having no mothing and is open at the rear. The edges of the armband both have a gold bullion tress running the length.

In the center area in gold thread in the gothic style writing is the organization shown in a arch NSKOV. Below this is “Gau Koln-Aachen”. In the center of the organization designation is an NSKOV pin which features an oval oak leaf wreath being superimposed with a sword having an Iron Cross with swastika on it.

This is the first example that I have seen like this and I suspect that it must have been worn by one of the leaders of this group.

Excellent Plus. $550.00

ARMBANDS #44988 SA Sports Armband

This armband is still in fine condition throughout having bright red color to its cotton base.

The armband is well made having separate pieces of red cotton with the white stripe in the center. The whitre diamond separately sewn and the swastika is a black Bevo woven type.

This armband is a fine example for someone who wants to have the realism of the period in his collection. It is not in mint condition but it really talks to you.

This HJ armband is in the darker color red and is sewn up the rear.

It features good color to it with the red upper and lower and center white stripe. The white white diamond field is separately sewn to the armband and the black swastika is Bevo woven.

A nice example here which seems to show a little minor usage as the sewn area indicates it was made slightly smaller than the normal cut.

Excellent Plus. $165.00

We see quite a number of these state service armbands but they are normally in cotton. This is the first all wool material example that I have seen.

ARMBANDS #45554 Deutscher Volkssturm Wehrmacht Armband

This armband was worn by the last ditch troops consisting of old men and young boys attempting to hold Berlin against the Russians.

This armband shows a little bit of usage and a few stains but if anything it gives it some character. There is also a small hole at one side but it is not bad.

The armband has red stripes with a black center having two white open winged eagles clutching a swastika. In the middle it printed in white letters Deutscher Volkssturm Wehrmacht.

Good Plus. $125.00

The armband has a separately woven white sunburst and in the center is a black swastika.

The reverse of the armband has a number “7” which is woven to the armband. Apparently this was done to designate a certain group of RLB Luftschutz troops or whatever. Adds a little character to the armband however.

A good display example with an RLB EM dagger.

Excellent Plus. $295.00

ARMBANDS #45544 National Socialist Reich War Association (NSRKB) Armband

This armband is of all fine dark blue cotton.

A very fine example here still retaining its rich original colors.

Excellent Plus. $110.00

ARMBANDS #45550 Worker for Todt Organization Armband

This is the first armband of its type that I have seen. I feel that it is quite rare. The armband is of all white cotton construction and remains in perfect condition with only small signs of age.

In two lines is printed in black ink “Arbitet / fur O T”. Beside the black printed title is a rubber stamping. The stamping seems to have a swirling style swastika and the letter of the organization is very difficult to read.

The person that wore this obviously was a helper for the Organization Todt and as most collectors know Todt was responsible for the building of the great German Autobahn and also the West Wall among many other things.

A rarely seen example here.

Near Mint. $395.00

ARMBANDS #40334 Gau Level Political Leader Armband

Despite having a few minor hits on the front of this armband it still rermains in mint condition. he armband has the seven millimeter gold brocade leaves that run around the edges of both sides. The edges themselves are piped in the crimson red color which is indicative of Gau level usage. There is a fine satin lined white round field which is bordered with yellow cord.

Separately sewn inside, is a black satin lined swastika which is also piped in yellow cord. This fine armband is not sewn up the rear and on one edge there is the faint markings of the arrow with the word “Ober” to indicate which way is “up” for wearing purposes.

A great looking example here, and in top condition.

ARMBANDS #44978 Einsatzsturm der NSDAP SA Sports Armband with Issue Tag

This is a relatively rare armband and apparently represented a action group working for the NSDAP.

The armband is sewn up the rear. It shows some usage signs and some minor soiling but no real problems.

The armband is printed with a political style eagle at the top with the head looking to the right clutching a swastika and beneath in three lines is Einsatzsturm / der / NSDAP.

A interesting armband here a great one for political collectors.

A fine example here that speaks well of the period.

Excellent. $225.00

ARMBANDS #42792C Bahnhofswache Armband

This armband is quite rare as the Bahnhofswache was a relatively small organization, consisting of Army personnel that checked papers and kept order at railway stations. You did not want to see one of these guys approaching you if your papers were not in order!

The armband is constructed of yellow cotton, with "Bahnhoswache" woven in black.

A very fine and extremely scarce armband here.

Excellent Plus. $495.00

ARMBANDS #40716C SA Motorized School "Westmark" Armband

This armband is the standard red cotton type, sewn of the rear with the usual separately applied white field and black woven swastika. The coloring remains new-like and the band shows no wear.

Stamped in a rectangle on the interior of the band we read, "MSA Sch Wm". This stamping indicates this band comes from the SA Motorized School located in Westmark.

A very interesting SA variant here.
