    I'll have a look through my files for pics....I have an SS armband that is legit. What is neat about it is that the SS Mann enlarged it (or perhaps his wife did the stitch job). Just goes to show that even then people had to keep an eye on their wallets.
    The armband was probably made bigger to accomodate a coat. I can see it now: "Dearest Frau....May I have some Marks to get another armband?
    Mein Gott - forget that - just give me that extra one you have and I'll make it bigger! hahahaha
    I'll go through my pics.....I'm sure I have some pictures of it!
    Cheers!

    OK.....Found the pics....You'll see that it's not the most expensive three piece wool construction armband....this guy probably didn't have a lot of cash - hence the home jobby on the extension.
    There are nicer SS examples out there (like one shown above) but I like this one because of the personal, individualistic flavor.

    Cheers!
