    Thanks. It seems to read Standarte 31. SS Standarte 31 was part of SS-Brigade Niederbayern.

    SA Standarte 31 ..have to do some research but the lower part of the stamp might be (Wuerz)burg - (city district)

    A little research helps. SA Standarte, Gruppe Hansa, Altona (Hamburg).

    So the stamp can now be read. Top "SA der NSDAP" and below "Hamburg - Altona."

    Now that would imply that the armband is related to that unit. Someone should be able to research the use of a pip on an armband as a rank indicator or something else for early SA in Hamburg (or overall).

    Again, because the pip is a sew on type, it is reasonable to assume it belongs there.

    Maybe a resident SA expert on the forum can indicate if the pip on the armband is mentioned in any early uniform regulations.

    The presence of a pip on the armband indicates it was worn by the commander of a Sturm. At times, the sturm number was also worn on the armband. This was only used in the early days and was discontinued before the Nazi Party came to power.

    I appreciate everyones help on this topic. You guys did a great job in determining the origin of this armband.

    This is by far (to me) the best part of finding these items. Investigating to determine the origin and use of an item.


    The only thing remaining now is to find a pic of the armband in use and a specific description of the pip. I still have yet to see another like this.

    Thanks again gentlman.
