looks OK to me, upcoming ratisbons auction you can buy a 3m Band Material and one 1m Band. What would make around 14 blank cuffbands (each 28cm long).

If I zoom in, I count 6 which doesn't mean anything.
There are ct's with even 5 or 7 or 8 strands...

That means a lot if you know your SS insignias... 6 strands which I also count, is a valid marker for original or not. Along with the black weave of the black band.

I'am with Vladislav, one of the sides of this cuff title ends with a chine like a seam, wich ending the thread being woven. I have seen different original cufftitles with different count of aluminum thread. I never count them, because original cuff title are still had differences

I recommend to always count them. For normal RZM black bands they were 7 strands to at least 99% of the count - perhaps higher. There is a debate, and some collectors claim that for instance the Deutschland cuff title among a few others are originals bands having six strands. Other collectors disagree.

I would not buy a band with six strands silver border.
Be smart, stay safe and end up with true originals in your collection.

Cheers

I don't like the weave of the offerings on Klaus's auction.
