    Hi Dave, this armband is not conventional in it's construction. Maybe an early peice? I don't know. I would be interested to hear some input from others on this one.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I must agree with Ade that the construction of this armband is quite poor in comparison to original examples. If you keep it, may I suggest it be placed in a freezer for several days to prevent the spread of moth larva to any other cloth items.

    These things came in a woolen and cotton model, the former for the tunic and the latter for the short brown shirt. Of course, variations existed and perhaps the moth eaten piece is an authentic variation. I cannot tell under these circumstances.

    Collectors especially prize the early RFSS marks found on pieces from the years from about 1934 until 1936 or so......

    Can you please show the reverse of the roundel side of the armband? It looks to have some of the hallmarks of an early SS brownshirt armband, but constructed in unusual materials for its type..
