    Armband looks ok. The stains do not look like blood more like grease, dirt , water marks ect.

    You think it's authentic and why would it have that stain on it?

    Your armband is indeed authentic. For comparison, here's a mint example of the variant you possess.

    As for the stain, your article is 70 plus years old, of course it might have some wear and tear. These things were produced by the tens of thousands, they're readily found in all kinds of condition. I suspect the wear on your example is due to poor storage postwar as it doesn't appear it was ever issued, i.e: worn.

    That's awesome! I'm trying to figure out how grease or water would get on it?

    poor storage, being worn, etc. etc. Just like any other article of clothing.

    Many veterans stored their war souvenirs in their garages. If you decided to clean it don't use any kind of soap, only use warm water while you very lightly scrub it; personally, I'd leave it as it is.

    Best to leave it as is. At the end of the war many HJ were fighting with the Wehrmacht. The stains could have come from wear in combat. You will never know and it really does not make any difference.
