    Default Need help! Is this Waffen-ss armband real?

    I made an impulse buy on this German waffen-ss yellow armband. I was antiquing with my parents in the middle of nowhere and there was a whole case of nazi memorabilia. He had this band and another sports band along with some medals. Well the owner was closing in 15 minutes so I just paid for it. He wasnted $100 and I saw online this model could go for $350 or so. Well now I'm unsure if it is real looking at pictures of other ones. I paid $85. I lived a few hours from where the shop was. The black light test only had the top and bottom actual stitching gloing and that material is the same color as the band. That is all that was glowing. It is screen printed and has no tags anywhere. The stamp on the front has an eagle but none of the writing is readable. Is it real or did I pick up another fake from the 4th reich? I am very unfirmiliar with German military goods so I now have my doubts. Click image for larger version.

    It sure looks very new new. And I don't like the runes of it when compared with real examples.

    I moved this to the SS Uniform and Insignia Forum. The piece in my opinion is a fake. As previously stated, the runes are incorrect and also the eigentum stamp is something never encountered on genuine examples.

    If buying one of these, you need to buy a machine woven version.
