    Hi, I think you have the captions in the wrong order.

    They should be:


    A) Race and Resettlement
    B) Water Police
    C) German Automobile

    I noted that armband (A) and (B) seem to have been purchased from Snyder's Treasures as identical photos are still up on his website. This retailer most often than not has a bad reputation on here for selling "fakes"... but presumably if you are the purchaser you are confident that these armbands are what they purport to be? I do not want to cause any unintentional alarm as I do not collect in this area but I have been made cautious of this retailer by the negative comments posted by other members.

    I collect, therefore I am.

    The purpose of an armband is to identify the position held by the wearer. The Water Protection Police armband to me is a total fantasy design as they wore their own distinctive uniform aleviating the need for an armband. I do not have a good feeling about any of the three posted. If they came from Snyder's Treasures or from another source, their listing on Snyder's site would make me very uneasy. Welcome to the Forum! i am sorry to be a wet towel when you first post.

    I believe that the red Legion Condor armband shown on the guide is also a fantasy design.
    Legion Condor Armband. Opinion?

    Do you own the other 3 armbands that you posted? The first 2 are exactly the same items shown in the guide &
    all 3 are the exact items shown on Snyders site.

    I appreciate your candor - I'm a bit stunned at your information. I had no idea - wasn't expecting to read that.
    I need a breath of fresh air - collect my thoughts, change my underwear and get a blue light.
