    I don't like it.
    The swastika touches the white at some points, at one point it doesn't touch the white.
    Wait for other opinions.

    I dont like it either, very crudely made. It should look like this. This original is clearly partly handmade and the construction is not perfect, but the materials in the one shown dont match and the swastika is more mis-shapen.

    I also do not care for the workmanship on this piece. When posting a piece, one should always post a picture of the entire piece, not just sections of it. It is always possible that this is an early "homemade" kampfbinde, which do exist and are not always up to the requirements of the RZM.

    Personally, I'm rather leaning towards the made at home theory. A Chinese copy would be better made, as they are looking to deceive. The cloth on this one looks to have age to it and is fairly coarse, and the swastika is for all sakes and purposes correctly folded and is merely placed abit clumsily on to the roundel. Perhaps whoever hand cut out the roundel made it just a hair too small?

    If you are thinking of buying it I would pass for a one look original IMO.
    If it is yours post some better pics in daylight of the entire armband, as I can only agree with Bob and William.
    Could be pre RZM.

    Hello gentlemen

    Thank you for your replies.
    I was thinking of buying it but wanted several opinions first. When seeing the first replies started to agree it could be a copy but Bob's opinion got me thinking (could it be an early one??)
    These are the only pics I have. I'll try with the seller pics of the entire piece and post here
    Thank you once again
