    Default Real or fake armband

    Hello, can anybody tell if the armband (and breast eagle?) are real or fake? This is the only picture of them. I didn't pay too much attention to the eagle, I am looking to buy an armband locally. And I already have an Eastern Front medal, so that is of no concern to me. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    It is not looking good, but take a photo of the item closer instead of mile away so we can help you out.

    The photo alone would be incentive to pass on these items, everything artistically

    Early political armband. The stripes were the early configuration of displaying the rank system and I agree, it looks to be a fake.
