HJ Armband

Article about: I'm torn both ways on this one. Part of me thinks it's too mint to be authentic. The other part of me thinks it could have been picked up from storage, factory, etc, having never been issued

    Default HJ Armband

    I'm torn both ways on this one. Part of me thinks it's too mint to be authentic. The other part of me thinks it could have been picked up from storage, factory, etc, having never been issued. What say ya'll? The diamond is stitched to the main band, and the swastika is embroidered. The RZM tag is my one major "red flag," it's freaking perfect, which scares me. Tried to get the best pic of the RZM tag with my craptastic Nikon Cool Pix (which is junk for taking close up, detailed pics.) The tag has a pencil written "275," so it reads "A 4 275." The bottom number is "Z Nr 161135"

    Thanks!

    Looks like a nice original item with the proper RZM tag to me.

    Fantastic! I've never found a minty HJ for sale. What's an approximate value for one in this condition? I paid around $80 USD.

    You did just fine IMO I see them for around 120$ or so around here.

    Due to concern about the fuzziness of photos I had submitted on other threads for other items I have, I have decided to post some pics of this arm band taken with a much much better camera, just to confirm that it's a good one. Thanks!

    100% period original. That was obvious from the earlier pictures as my colleagues confirmed it being correct. Nice piece. Thins can still be found in this condition after 66 years if stored properly.

    It's fine. Super shape and very probably unissued. William
