Default NSDAP armband - opinions please

Hi Guys,

I would be very grateful for opinions on this party armband. It's a two-piece construction type with printed swastika on a sewn-on roundel. This type aways confuses me - I don't know whether it's period or a modern Eastern European reproduction, so I would appreciate other's views. There is no label and nothing glows under UV as far as I can see.

Many thanks for looking and for any comments.

All the best, Guy

Thanks Ironfist, I appreciate the comment, but this type with the printed roundel, seems to me to be simple to reproduce.

Not a fan of this example, specifically because of the extra reinforcement at the top and bottom of the back seam. Typically seen with Eastern European repros.

I agree, that reinforcement is seen on almost all repros.

Another example with similar reinforcing.

If it doesn't glow it could just be likely the fake is using older thread. There are a lot of armbands that don't glow and originals which do glow.
