    Default Question Armbands-Army helpers and Volksturm

    Hi all,
    Here are a couple of recently purchased armbands - a nice yellow helpers one and a Volkssturm ( both bought from reliable sellers ) PLUS a weird "iffy" one I have had for many years in the junk box. I think it's no good - the printing is just quite poor ( even if it smells old and the stitching is neat and machine done )

    I just wanted to know whether anyone has seen one of these before? ..... as I have never!
    Thanks, Dan

    I like the top two.

    But the bottom one I have never seen before.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes Ade - it is a strange bird ( pardon the pun ) ..... just doesn't fill me with confidence. Too neat to be a 'one off' but just not expected TR quality to me..... that's why its in the junk pile
    Thing is, whether original or a repo, surely some others have surfaced over the years???

    So, no-one has any ideas on the DW one?

    I agree with Ade. The "DW" piece is likely a fantasy as I have also never seen one. As theprinted armbands were manufactured enmasse, after nearly 70 years, I would think another one would have surfaced long ago. As these are military items, I will move this to the proper forum where you will likely receive more input.
