    Photos of the Armband turned inside out may perhaps prove useful, though I'm assuming it's unstamped being an unoffical piece...These Early Kampfzeit Pieces are Tricky, especially without solid Provenance regarding their origin...Price is an important factor as well...Too Cheap? High Dollar?
    Personally speaking, I would like to smell it first...
    cheers,Glenn

    Smell is always the best way with aged cloth...you cant replicate it

    Thanks for the comments guys, I emailed seller earlier for additional shots, rear & 'inside out', not replied as of yet. The armband is a 'vet' bringback, that was purchased as part of a grouping belonging to this veteran, & is priced at 45. Of course, the smell test, when the guy emails back, I'll ask that one too.

    Hi, I really like these early "crudely" made pieces. From just the one pic, IMO, a good one, although I notice the stitching goes through the white roundel, and same with the black of the swastika. Kind of like these are too big for the band itself. But I still dont count it out. Who knows how many or who was making this stuff in the early years of the party. We have all seen pics of early party rallies where some of the flags look like some kids school project. It is a sketchy area, but proper cloth, construction, and like bigmacglenn and wizardman say, a good whiff, also, blacklight and burn tests, all add up, your probably o.k.

    There is a good chance this piece is period original. However, as previously stated, these pieces are questionable to many. It should certainly be priced less than a standard no questions piece.

    Couple of pictures through from seller, the band measures 16cm across x 8cm high, seems small compared to what I already own ? Already thinking that, maybe, this could be a purchase that gives me a headache !
