    This is a reproduction piece. The ink stamp is a giveaway as these were never stamped like this. These armbands were locally produced by numerous suppliers so period originals can have some variations. The stitched ends also never existed on any originals I have seen.

    This is a repro as mentioned, I never mess with items that have stamps like this because these are most of the time fake

    when buying a stamped item, always remember the stamp should be on the front of the item making proper issuance o question to the observer. Many of the fakes have the stamps on the reverse where they serve no purpose as they can not be seen when the piece is worn.
