    I've never seen one, if they do-which I very much doubt-nor have I ever Heard of any existing Or in use either.

    Definitely a fantasy item. What purpose would they serve? Advertising that here I am and I am ready to impregnate young Aryan ladies?

    Certainly all alleged Lebensborn armbands are post-war fantasy items.

    As Bob Coleman said - Who would have worn them and on what occasion?

    The personnel working at Lebensborn facilities would have worn the same clothing as found in any other healthcare/nursing institution (nurses' dresses and -hoods, aprons, labcoats etc. etc. or, in the case of administrative personnel, civilian clothing), while the SS personnel involved in the organization had their SS uniforms.

    Well said.

    I must admit I have never believed in armbands for Lebensborn.
    The one shown by bigmacglenn1966 is an armband as introduced for a doctor (Arzt), related to the health-service for the
    HY-organization with article-number 8891, on the understanding it would be a good one!!

    Without the red stripes along the edges it would be a version for Feldscher with article-number 8892 (drawings were published
    in Reichsbefehl 13/41 from September 5, 1941). The armbands were introduced earlier and were under the control from the
    Reichszeugmeisterei and available through the Gesundheitsabteilungen (health-departments for a Gebiet or Obergau-districts).

    Lucky we are to have such fine and wise counsel and the fruits of so much wonderful research.
