    Default Wanted: Assessment of these pre-1932 party armbands

    Wanted: Assessment of these pre-1932 party armbands. The armbands are presented as Kreisleiter and Gauleiter party armbands.
    Together the price would qualify as 'expensive', IMO.

    Finding two of these very rare early pattern armbands in one place for me would raise a red flag. For over 15 years, excellent copies of these early pieces have been in the market place. Without unquestionable provenance, I would not ever consider buying these pieces.

    As would I. I will say they're not like the majority of the copies I've encountered. The key here though is the roundel, and the above examples don't match period pictures in my opinion.

    This maybe of some help. Every period picture I've seen to date displays a roundel with these dimensions.

    Great posts. There is nothing better than period pictures to prove a point.

    Personally, I don't like the stripe material very much. It's appearance does not look period-nor does the stitching. It's difficult to say definitively without having the piece in hand for better examination, but as they both stand, I would pass on them.
