    Default Two Nazi armbands

    I just got my hands on two armbands, its supposed that both where found in a box of at a house that belonged to some germans in San Francisco, back in the 60s. There are no marks on them, so i came here for help.. They sure look old.. What are they? Are they real? How much may they be worth?
    Thank you folks..

    Both appear to be genuine. The plain armband is a type worn by all political and some civil formations of the 3rd Reich. The damaged armband is for an Ortsgruppenleiter or local leader of the Nazi Party. This form of armband was instituted in 1939. Prior to that, political leaders wore an armband like your first item.

    Thanx Bob...
    Ive got them by trade... against an old BED that i was about to throw away because i moved from El Salvador to Mexico. Togheter with the armbands ive got also two maya archaeological pieces, of which im sure that theyre original. Quite a deal then... So,one of the armbands belonged to a real diehard NAZI ??I can almost feel its evilness.. .. Are they expensive nowadays? Obviously i will keep em as a very special part of my collection and pass them on to my children (which i still dont have..)

    Both are fairly common items. The Ortsgruppenleiter piece has condition issues. In a large city, an Ortsgruppenleiter could be responsible for a single block. In a small town, he could be the mayor.
