Default Woven Volkssturm armband

I'm almost afraid to ask, but what do you gentlemen think of this Bevo style woven Volkksturm Wehrmacht armband?

Thumbs up BeVo Volksturm Armand - Neat!

Wow!

I like it. Unusual to say the least. If it were offered to me I'd buy it!


MfG,

Original Volksturm leaders armband.

Congratulations, I have sought one of those for years, without success.

Hello,
Bob has said it all. These are real and very rare. One was offered to me back in the mid-80's (Tom Schutt had it) and I turned it down because it was too much-$45. I regret not picking it up.

This is a good example of an item being very rare, yet it is not too exspensive and very little people know about them. This makes three now that I have seen.

Regards,
Jody

That is the first one I have ever seen...but then I routinely ignore them so I probably never would have seen one without you posting. Very nice and thanks for posting.

Richard

I have never seen that before either and I've bought tons of the printed from estates for years!

It's nice to hear that it's an original one. I was going to make a Volkssturm uniform impression with it, but now that you guys say it's an original leader's armband, I believe it should rest in a collection rather than a fake display. What would be a fair asking price?

Hello,
I feel you have the advantage. Most folks don't know what it is. I would offer what a mint standard one goes for plus 10%.

Lets face it, as rare as it is, it is not worth a ton of money either to most collectors.

Regards,
Jody

Since it is uncommon and in such good condition, I would say $80 low $150 high for this piece.

Have had one for years; Weitze offered one a couple of years ago for (I think) for about 250 Euros...
How do we know it is specifically for a VS leader and precisely what VS rank is meant by "VS leader"?
Seems to me it could be a scarce (early?) production variant.

These bevo ones are interesting. I wonder if they have any association with SS instructors.
