    Hi everyone,

    I broke my own vow to not get one of these, but I weakened. There are a couple of odd things I noticed after the fact: the disk is not exactly centered vertically on the band itself, the bevo weave has sort of "tightened" the disk's fabric in one direction (distorting the swastika a tad)…

    … and I know nothing about RZM tags.

    What can I say… it was an impulse buy, but I hope it was a good one.

    Best regards,

    G. Kelly

    I like the price being written on the tag!

    Thanks to all for the replies.

    I saw the handwritten price and first thought to myself, "Who would have paid 45 marks for this thing back then?" Then it dawned on me that "Rm - 45" meant 45 pfennigs.

    Given an assumption of an average wage of Rm 30 back in pre-war Germany and converting that to an average wage of say, USD1000 per week these days it can roughly be translated that Rm -45 is equivalent to about $15 today. Which is what I might expect to pay today for a cloth armband.

    Should I ever be inclined to want to wear one.
