    Default Luftwaffe armband

    Hello gents,, I had this for a long time since high school,,,and I only occasionally seen these once in a great while. I look through some of the threads here and didnt see any. This passes the black light test,,but I think it may be repro as the eagle head is facing to the right. Any thoughts?? Regards Larry

    Almost looks like a sports eagle, possible one made into an armband, I can't say I've ever seen anything like it

    Is it possible that this was for a Luftwaffe helper?

    Here is my sports eagle for comparison Larry. The eagle facing that way is the same as the sports eagle, but I have never seen an armband like this.

    Hi Larry,

    I'm purchasing a armband like your's, but I'm not sure too about it's authenticity. Don't seems to me it was made from a shirt insignia, but may be they used the same print pattern.

    Hi Larry-
    This is likely worn on civilian clothing by civilian employees of the Luftwaffe.
