Authentic armband or not?

Article about: A strange question, perhaps, but if an armband is not made of "wool or cloth material either", then what would it be made of? I don't recall ever seeing any leather, paper or metal

    Default Authentic armband or not?

    This armband said 100% money back guarantee for authenticity so I assumed it was real. If they don't have RZM tags or stamps, are they fake? Just wanted some advice from the experts on here! Please and thank you (:

    A nice period original cotton kampfbinde. The paper RZM tags can come off-especially on worn examples such as yours. Welcome to the Forum.

    Even though it's not the wool or cloth material either?

    this would only be true with pieces made prior to 1933 and RZM oversight. A manufacturer would have to apply a sample to the Reichszugmeisterei for approval and if approved, they would be issued a manufacturer's code number. The label was a tax to the NSDAP so it would be very unwise to try to manufacture anything political without first obtaining permission.

    It is a common cotton example which would have had a "B" code RZM label. Wool examples had a "D" RZM code.
