Default NSDAP Armband - Help please

Hi Guys,

I know there were printed NSDAP armbands and woven ones and composite ones but what about this type with a printed swastika and the roundel sewn onto the band? I know this has been washed too much resulting in fading of the swastika but is this likely to be a period example?

Many thanks for looking and for all comments,

All the best, Guy

As Pete has indicated, lots of better examples readily available.


However I believe yours is period.


Another that was among the souvenirs brought back by a local veteran....

Thanks Pete and Ron, I appreciate your comments. I admit it's not the best, but if it's period, then at least its' been there

Thanks again, all the best, Guy

The one that starts the thread I believe is not an original. Note the extra stitching on the back side of the seam (top and bottom of the band). This is often seen on Eastern European fakes.
