    Should I have this Ortsgruppenleiter or local leader of the Nazi Party Armband restored or should I leave it as it is?

    I would leave it as it, Maybe put it behind glass for future protection.

    Leave it as is!

    Put it behind some glass with acid free backing if you frame it. I would never restore something like that.

    Theres really not a lot that someone can do with this, and any repair will show, best leave alone, and as GP says place under glass

    A the moment its rolled in acid free paper in a box kept out of the light.

    What would something like this be worth framed and placed behind glass? I know it depends on the frame used - $650 - or more?

    I would pay around $850 - $1000 if its framed correctly.

    I would get a peice of brass, engrave it to what it is, and frame it right.. great for any collector to display.

    The moth holes could be rewoven by a professional but the cost to do so would be prohibitive.
    I think the suggestions about mounting on acid free board and framing is an exellent idea.

    I believe you have received excellent advice from the membership on how to proceed.

    I do agree. Try to figger out witch underground* would be best. First thing that comes up to me is a similar red undergroud just as big as the armband is, that might make the moth holes less obvious.

    * by "underground " I mean the acid free paper that would be used at the back (don't know if the translation is right!)
