    Is it plausible that a worker manning the embroidery machine may have added a piece of material for a special
    one off for a friend or themselves ?? Not un- ordinary to do IMO...Gwar

    I'm glad you brought this one up. I have seen another armband like this, but passed on it because i've never seen one like it before. It has me stumped as well

    Hi people,

    Examining this piece in hand, I conclude it's not a periode one and returned it to the seller, for the reasons bellow:

    - Comparing cloth used with others TR armbands, I observed cloth has nothing in common with them.

    - The paint used in the eagle looks much more like a modern vinyl silk screen paint than others TR cloth printed black paint I have saw before.

    - The yellowed cloth seems suspicious to me, it seems like something done artificially.

    - Observing it under UV light, I see some few light areas with some slight reactions. Seems to me this cloth received some kind of optical cleaners in the past and the weathering process (artificial or not) had masquerade it, except on some clear areas under sew.

    Hi, A long time back I aquired a very similar armlet with a black eagle on a bright yellow field and have kept it in the hope that it is original. Mine is of relatively poor construction which may indicate late war or repro but I live in hope. When I get the chance, I will dig it out and post a few pics for comparrison
    Cheers MR
