These were worn by students at advanced training schools. There is an identical pattern with an Army eagle.

What would the value of this armband be
Bob its nothing to do with training schools, its a naval Luftschutzdienst detachment armband, used by the air protection leader for the passive defence against enemy air attacks in a naval district.
Do you know the value of this armband
Well I can tell you I refused to buy the Luftwaffe version of this, which in my eyes is much nicer, and in a higher rank, for $165.
Thanks for the info Pete
In a book I have it says , Navy Graduate at Naval Officers Training School . That what the book says . Nothing about value sorry .
No; naval Luftschutz/ship repair is correct: Navy personnel functioning in air raid protection roles wore armbands identifying their function. There were (at least) eight different ones; the armband pictured above identifed personnel assigned to the Havariedienst.
