    As this is a printed armband, pictures of the backside and stitching will help. My initial reaction is that it is a period original.

    I have seen these with the eagle head turned both left and right. These were mass produced at the end of the war by multiple manufacturers which accounts for variants.

    I agree, it's a good one. Here is my example, with a bit of moth-damage...

    Thanks everybody for your help. I ended up winning it at an auction for $30. I hope that was a reasonable price.

    You did good.

    Now you only need to find a original piece of civilan clothing with remains of having such Volksturm armband attached.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.
