    Default SS-armband with RZM-tag - genuine or fake?

    I´m in the beginning of my collecting career. I resently won an SS-armband with RZM-label (se pictures) on an auction on Catawiki. From what I understand it is an earlier version that was worn with the brown shirt. After reading the threads on this forum I have started to understand how little I know and how well made the fakes are. I therefore have som questions;

    1. In your opinion, is the armband real or fake?

    2. The experts on Catawiki, can they be trusted?

    3. If the answer to the question above is "no", could it perhaps be a better idea to buy from dealers with good reputation? "The ruptured duck" seems to have a good reputation in this buisness. Is it safe to buy collectables from them or would you recomend other dealers?

    Best regards

    You can absolutely NOT trust the "experts" on Catawiki.

    And you can not treust the real dealers, some of them are real good but even they can make mistakes.
    So my advice is to ask here on the forum before you buy something.

    Btw, Välkommen till forumet

    Thanks for all the replies, you guys are greate! I will se if I can be refunded. I had higher expectations on the experts of Catawiki but it´s obvious that they are no guarantee for the authenticity of the objects. Next time i will definitely check with this forum before I buy an object.

    Which dealers would you say are the most reliable to buy from?
