Default Red Cross Armband

Hello to all,

I would like to hear your opinions on this Red Cross armband.
In my opinion it’s a typical wartime production..

Thanks for your help!
Regards
Robin

So i think the reason why this armband shines under UV light is, that someone washed this armband.
Can someone confirm this?

What else do you need? It was washed.

Too often folks just assume something glows because it’s been washed. It also could simply be post WW2 production.

Just a personal preference, but I pass on items like this.

This pattern of armband I believe was used as recent as the 1960’s. So this example could be washed or could be one of these later produced examples.
