Interesting Rough SS Armband

    You must have some nasty critters living in your part of the country to eat so much cloth.
    Great looking pieces from what I can see. I am far from an expert. You seem to fall into all kinds of stuff in your area.

    Finally! A definitive reply on the infamous horizontal ribbed armbands! You sure seem to have a knack for finding these pieces! I can't recall ever seeing one before you first posted the original! Good job!

    I think we found something for the record books. Looks like "7" is our mystery maker?

    Well, I actually got this armband from a friend who lives down south. Nothing can live in the tundra of North Dakota... I think it was -17 with windchill the other day..

    The sad part is, I didn't even notice the ribs until I got it in hand...

    Thanks

    Nicely done, Larry. The photo FB posted of a uniform alongside an Isreali submachine gun evoked a mental image in the same vein. I wish I had the talent to create images like the one you posted.
