I am not a fan and believe them to be post war reproductions. Did you do the smell test, black light or thread burn? See what Bob Coleman and others think. Fantasy almost certain.

No. I did not do the tests. I know better now. I saw them in an antique shop.
the waffen SS kills them right away.
I have only seen DRK armbands without the swastika. Did they even have a pattern with it?
Both armbands are fake. The Legion Condor is a total fantasy item. As previously mentioned, there is no reason for a Red Cross armband to have a Waffen SS issue stamp. The Red Cross was totally independent from the SS. The Red Cross piece is also a fantasy design as previously mentioned, they never had a swastika.

Thanks for all of your help.
Thanks for the information. I learn something new all the time here.
