    Hate to rehash an old thread..but another member posted a link to this page Armband Identification Gallery where they are calling the Armband an NSAO
    NSDAP Wounded Factory Workers Organization
    EDIT just noticed,thats my actual photo on that page...so the 'title' of the armband must be from here

    ive also come across this tinnie, GDAO what the NSAO turned into (as previously pictured) WWII German Stickpin Collectibles Price Guide - MilitaryItems.com ..i just get this feeling that because they were injured they cut the symbol in half

    Like the Armband. First I have seen.

    A NSAO pin I have on my site if anyone wants to reference this link: NSAO Labor Organization

    The Nationalsozialistischer Reichsver-band der deutschen Arbeitsopfer (Nationalsocialist Reich Association of German Victims of Industrial Accidents). Assuming organization was embedded in the DAF (Deutsche Arbeitsfront or German Labor Front). I have had a hard time finding much information about the NSAO in the Organisationsbuch der NSDAP, the official "Nazi bible" which contains the entire structure of the Nazi regime.

    Undoubtedly a property stamp from a different office that issued this piece.

    The construction of this armband is great and it must be an extremely rare item.

    The only thing I can think about is that the stamp says:
    Der Jugend der Deutschen Arbeitsfront and in the beginning they may have planned
    to show a difference between youth and elder DAF members.
    There existed in the early structures a special department within the DAF (Amt Jugend). During
    the war the department, known as Jugendamt, felt under the command of the Kriegs-
    Hauptarbeitsgebiet II.


    HJ-members went along together concerns and were known as the "Vortrupp der HJ".
    In 1933 the NSJB youth, which was apart of the NSBO, felt under the command of the Abteilung VIII from the Reichsjugendführung
    and were organized local (Standort), in Kreis, Gau and in the sub-department Abteilung für Jugendbetriebszellen in der RJF.
    Since mid 1933 the DAF was the sole organization for all German laborers and so also the youth felt in their structures (maybe for this reason
    the indication for the stamp at the armband).
    The incorporation of the NSJB within the HJ-organization was announced October 10, 1933 in the Verordnungsblatt der RJF (HJ).

    In my opinion the armband is not NSAO, due to the different symbol with the shown armband.
    Wim you are on the money..The owner of the Armband tells me that he has found a pin exactly the same as the Armband and its for the DAFJ (DAF Jugend) An organization started by Robert Ley for young workers, that was joined into the HJ in October 33..theres a little info in this book https://books.google.com.au/books?id...20nazi&f=false
