    Default Legit Todt Armband Style

    I am unable to provide a picture better than this, but my question concerns the font used for the words 'Org Todt' on this
    particular Todt Armband - is it an original variation for this type of Todt Armband? I've not seen
    this particular font used for this armband. Any thoughts? Has this Armband been reproduced more
    recently? Any ideas welcomed.

    I was able to see the font in question in use by the Todt Org on a different armband, however.
    My quest was to verify as authentic the specific font used in the original picture. The cuff-band here
    uses the font, more easily seen when enlarged:

    Default Picture of Org Todt Armband in wear

    bmsmear....Please see pictures. This photo of a Org Todt Man and his wife looks very similar to the font on your armband. My feeling is that you are okay with it. It sure looks similar if not the same to the one you have pictured. If you look at the small blow up picture I posted of it and use the magnifying glass on your computer to zoom you can see the "g" in Org and "period" between Org & Todt (is diamond shaped) and the "T" looks like yours. The "d" in TODT is probably the most telling as it slants to the left hard like yours. Old English type script. Sorry to geek out with all my analysis and hope that it helps.
