    F-b...outstanding!
    If you like that, these are foetid, too. They all are......

    Do you know something that is seventy five years old, that is more or less organic (woolen?) and smells sweet and fresh?
    damit, basta.

    In the vein of Proust, I can see and smell a cotton NSDAP arm band among the first clump of this stuff I saw in 1961, and it had a biting, acrid odor from the dye that I will always recall, and it always summons me back to that electric, profound and deep moment that as an eight year old I saw the first Nazi regalia brought home by a friend's father from the recent war. Not for nothing on my way from Kaiserslautern to Heidelberg, a trip I once made frequently, I could imbibe the odor of the BASF plant. Odor and memory are on a close axis.

    Hello F-B,
    I had my wife take several good sniffs of the kampfbinde. She could not smell anything either....it has no odor or smell. It's scent is "neutral or non-existent" for lack of better words. Is that a good sign or not?
    By the way, I lived near Kaiserslautern for 3 years when I graduated from college in the early 70's. My wife and I visited Germany last year...berlin, Nuremburg and Munich. We had a fabulous trip. We love Germany.
    Fabulous SS collection you have there.
    Best Regards,
    Ed

    this armband is very convincing at first glance, if fake. The bright red/orange color is what is striking to me. I did however, notice the ribbing was a bit wide on the white disc, though.

    Here is my SS armband, an early unissued example.

    I agree that it is very well made. When you consider the cost of producing such a piece as to what they sell for, the effort is well worth improving the product. The forums have been a guide to these fakers as how to improve their product. If this had a paper D code RZM tag, it would likely passed muster just from the pictures.

    Yes Mr. Coleman and FB, I agree.

    My example is unissued and marked 61/36. The smell is definitely foeted . I have never seen the 38/38 marks before, but i am not a seasoned collector as you guys.

    Thank you, Bob, and all the best for your fine work to the benefit of this site.

    The final verdict on SS regalia must always be in real life, with eyes, nose, throat and gut.

    I trust your experience and opinion unswervingly.
    damit, basta.
