    Default Night of the Living Fakes

    I bought this Flakhelferin armband a few weeks ago. I made the mistake of not researching them beforehand. Apparently there is a lot of controversy surrounding these.

    I decided to get a blacklight so I could check it out, and it just arrived via USPS this evening.

    Here are the images of the armband:

    The blacklight is a good thing to help us, but fake could be seem good with it ( the fake without nylon) and good item washed could be seem faked (some bleaching agents for detergent react to light black).

    Then we can think, how are manufacture all bands of this type: stenciled on fabric.

    It's cheap and fast, everything needed for the 3rd Reich.

    Your banner and expensive to manufacture, size is not adjustable, which means that we make different sizes. In addition to your banner seems very fragile.

    So logically, it does not fit the principles of the time which he should date

    The wide selvedge is not something I would expect to see on a German manufactured TR period cloth item.

    Whatever its just an opinion.
