    hi , to my eyes the swastika appears to be of one piece construction and looks like felt . a sharper pic of the swastika would help . if its felt, its the kiss of death for this armband......paul

    The Swastika is one piece and it feels like felt. So basically a felt Swastika is a fake for sure?

    Well thanks for your help Paul! I guess I will have to keep searching to find a real one. I have had far better luck with Third Reich photographs through the years then cloth. There are just so many reproductions of everything sadly, I wish that wasn't the case but I think that is true for everyone.
