    The inside of the armband has been stamped with a blue ink eagle and swastika. This was a common practice in many armbands.

    I personally do not like the construction and believe it is a fake. I have handled 100's of these pieces in my collecting years and have never encountered one with any type of issuance stamp on the backside. Stamps found on armbands are usually eigentum or property stamps. They will be found on the exterior face of the band. Caution as fakers also stamp armbands attempting to validate their fakes.

    well, mine does not have ink stamp but I'm pretty sure of its authenticity
    I need to finish making a few test but so far looks good.

    Not necessarily. Snyder does sell some genuine items, although a significant percentage of his stock is fake.

    Another Ant-
    Your volksturm armband is genuine. The purpose of issuance stamps is so anyone viewing the armband can see the stamp. A stamp on the backside where no one can see it is illogical.

    Well, another ant said that if it looks like one from Snyder's website, then it's definitely fake. I wouldn't buy from Snyder, but I wouldn't necessarily say that comparing something to his stock will prove it to be fake. It would probably be a red flag, though.

    I also saw it as something unusual, but coming from this link militaryitems.com
    I give enough credibility.
    but he say in "many" not in all.
    nd do not specify whether Volkssturm armbands or others, the picture with ink stamp not seem a volkssturm armband.
