What is said on another site apropos of nothing, but a statement that encapsulates the problem of the halt leading the blind....
"....Just doesn't look right, the material used
I have never owned one of these, so just my honest opinion
I am surprised the big guns have not chimed in yet ..."
This sort of post is what takes up so much space so often.
and which is why, just as there are only half a dozen dealers I trust implicitly, there are contributers on this site (lifetime members, moderators and other experts with specialised skills) whose opinion is given without fear or favour and is the best that can be relied upon , given the limitations of the medium.
Thanks for your persistence in striving for quality in all areas. Paul

I might have to admire them from afar in that case as I'm sure I'll never have enough expendable income to afford such gems. They are terrific to see nonetheless.
Unusual to see an SS-Kampfbinde marked in such a manner - a very nice example, well done.
Currently working on several KZ related projects, including items for the USHMM, Groß-Rosen Museum and various private concerns and studies. Available as a guide to KZ sites, contact for details.

Very nice kampfbinde! And as usual a real pleasure to see your lovely collection of black uniforms and visors F.B.
Thanks, friends. I should not snark with the purloined post (it was about an arm band), but it so typifies the problem of work here that I could not resist.
