    Default NSDAP Armband: For Real?

    This came from the same lot as other items I've posted recently.

    I have reservations about it being genuine.

    It's 15" X 3 3/4", of what looks like wool felt. Colors are vivid, and if it's been worn, it wasn't often: there's no soil evident.

    The white circle is 3 1/4", of a woven fabric; the Swastika is ~2", well finished, and also felt.

    I'm aware that much of this type insignia has been reproduced over the years.

    Your opinions are most welcome...

    The base material appears to be either felt or a course wool.Neither items were used in the construction of period examples. From the pictures, I believe it to be a reproduction.

    Wrong construction of the swastika and wrong materials for the body. Not genuine.

    Hi , I agree , I have not seen an NSDAP armband constructed in this way before so I also say it's a fake, sorry , Leon.
