    Default NSDAP armband with printed symbol - is it real

    First time purchase of this type of German Militaria. Other items appeared authentic and price was worth the gamble but I had done no study so hope its good but want to give forum chance to comment. Once I got home and checked the forum I see most examples are 3 piece construction and are marked or tagged but this one has a printed symbol and no stampings or material tags. Thanks Joe

    I think it stands a good chance of a early style kampfbinde IMO.

    This is a difficult piece to judge from the pictures. The manner of stitiching the printed roundel to the band is quite unusual. I personally have never seen this construction before. I would not buy it based on pictures alone. In hand, I might feel differently.

    Odd, the double ring of stitching. It could well be period, but, personally, I'd pass on it, or at the very least not spend too highly on it. William

    After looking at it for a while now I made up my mind and I say it's an original period piece. But that's just my opinion and that rarely counts. While it's definately not a textbook example of Kampfbinde for the reasons mentioned by Bob and William, it is certainly one that is good for a discussion and more meaningful and helpful comments than "Nice one!" and "I like it."

    Cheers, MB.

    What does kampfbinde translate to?

    It means warband or fightband roughly speaking.
