    Default Armband and Rank Tabs

    Colleagues,
    Am considering purchase of the below pictured items. Would like your opinion as to fake/real, and if real, approximate value. I realize the pics are low resolution but they are the best the seller has. Reportedly these were brought back by the seller's Father-in-Law.

    Thanks,
    Rick

    Incidentally, I did purchase and receive the pictured, locally made JG52 box from the Ukraine. Remarkable craftsmanship and the detail on the droptail eagles is outstanding.

    I think you are looking at an NSDAP-Armband for a Leiter eines Hauptamtes and collar tabs for the rank of an Gemeinschaftsleiter (1939-1945), both for the administrative level of a Kreis (district?). From only these photos I dare to say they are in a nice condition and most probably original. Better closeups may confirm that.

    Someone more with prices of these items may soon give you some approximate value. Good luck with your purchase! Oh, and a very neat box you got there already.

    Cheers, MB.

    I have a set of collar tabs identical to those. Very nice. I have seen them priced from $375 to $675 US dollars. Beautiful box and armband as well.

    The seller had an offer of $350 for both the armband and collar tabs. I offered $400 the next morning and they were already gone. Such is the way it sometimes goes. I'll take close-ups of the JG52 box one of these days and post them. They workmanship is truly remarkable. One can feel the vacuum form as the top snugs down and the lifting of the top is likewise delayed by the slight suction. And to think that this was no doubt crafted by a Ukrainian furniture maker in a German occupied area.
