    I guess this is not the proper forum for this Polish armband, but I didn't see a Polish forum. I was wondering what exactly this is, and who wore it? It is a very nice armband. It looks like a high-end item to me. It is made from what looks like Silver bullion. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

    I've been told this is a commemorative armband for veteran's of the Warsaw Uprising.

    Thanks for the info. I don't think there were a lot of survivors of the uprising, so this armband may be rare. Ebay, here I come...

    I've had them and as they are a commemorative the price is generally in the $50-75 range.
