I wish I had such expert advice and generous support in crucial matters when I was but a tyke embarking on this twisted path, of that you can be certain. The un used armbands with the paper tag cost all of fifteen dollars when I started, if that.....so there.
I am a newbie and I am very happy to have your help! Until I have one of everything from Germany WW2 I will not be an expert on any one item or maybe never will be. But I owe my entire collection to the good people on this forum. I never ask about price ( which is what someone is willing to pay for something they really value), just authenticity. I am learning and have bought a few things on my own from collectors here without validation....I am weaning myself from posting everything I buy on here! Or I am just broke..........which is also the case. LOL.

From your collages of images I think you are an artist dressed in a collectors mantle FB.
so no one knows if the stitching through the swaz. showing on the inside of the band, is acceptable as just a sewing vareation ?
