    Hi folks.

    I've had these for about 20+ years, got them from my father. They've been kept in plastic and in storage. Thoughts?

    They are both trying to be this armband
    Which was for a Gaugeschaftsfuhrer who excisted from 1932-33...
    In my opinion both are reproduction pieces.

    Or they could mimic a gauleiter armband perhaps!
    But missing the star in them of course..

    Ullergaard... Could it be possible that the two armbands in the original post are indeed authentic Gauleiter, only missing the center piece? Or, are you seeing more issues, perhaps with the material?

    Thanks.

    epm... If they are reproductions, they are extremely well made. They look beautiful to me. Unfortunately, I do not posses the knowledge to say either way.

    Thanks for posting the photos.

    I also believe they are reproduction
    Not the correct sewing especially in the back (IMO)
