    I looked through the past posts for information on this variation and couldn't find any info. This style Volksstrum armband is being sold online and if real I'd love to buy it. Anyone familiar with this variation?

    In my opinion it is a variation that is uncommon & looks okay to me. Looks to be of period material and stitching looks okay as well. Attached is a photo I have seen of one prior as well for sale. See what others think. Mr. Coleman will weigh in as well with a good opinion on its fate.

    I have never seen this variation and would have hesitation in purchasing it. The printing appears to be poor quality. It may be period but I would like to see it in a period illustration.

    I've never seen a red one either. It would not be for me...

    Thank you guys. I did search for period photos and came up with nothing. I'm going to pass on this one. It's a shame though. I was really digging the color scheme.
