    Default Early postcard with Hitler in SS armband

    Hi Guys, I don't really collect political items, but I have owned this item for over 35 years.

    It is interesting as it shows Hitler wearing an SS pattern armband, with the black stripes to the edges.



    Published around 1933, as it states, "Reichkanzler" but I suspect the image dates from earlier, as Hitler looks younger?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ewan, I have not idea why Hitler wears this SS pattern armband. I was hoping someone else might know the story behind it.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I don't think I have ever seen (or at least consciously noted) Hitler wearing the SS-style brassard in any other photograph...

    If I absolutely had to make a guess, I would suspect it had to with Hitler's official status as "Der oberste Führer der Schutzstaffel" ["The Supreme Commander of the Schutzstaffel"].

    Maybe he wore the brassard (for appropriate occasions) to indicate this?
