    Default NSDAP Armband? Fake?

    Hello all,

    I've had this armband for quite some time and never really had it checked out as it has really just been sitting in a shoebox lately. I don't have that good of a feeling on this one, and thought anyone with greater knowledge would be able to confirm my doubts.

    Thanks,
    ~Damian

    Unless it is a very earley made before RZM controll I guess it is possibly ok but not as a RZM era IMO I could be wrong though. Im sure someone else will be able to help further good luck.

    From your images, I believe this is a genuine period kampfbinde based on the construction.

    "Bund" would actually mean organization.

    I must ask Bob what kampfbinde means please. I've searched and find no definition I respect your opinion Sir.

    "Binde" is like the English word "band", so it's something like "struggleband" or, "armband for the struggle" basically. A non-Nazi armband might be called an "Armbinde" in German, which translates exactly to our word; "Armband".

    Thanks for bell ringer Doomtown on the translation.

    Absolutely, glad I could help. I was a German major in college, every once in awhile it's useful, haha.

    My concern would be the crooked application of the swastika roundal and the width of the swastika itself.

    Hi Eric, it looks like it once had a paper tag on the back which would infer it being RZM era.

    If offered to me, I think I would pass on it.

    Cheers, Ade.
