    The first piece is not SS but us something that was made under SS control. I do not like the construction of #2. #3 has a chance of being correct but from the images, I have some concern over the material used in the construction of the piece

    I agree with Bob. First example has the classic three piece construction of a period armband but it is not an SS armband. The second item raises a few problems, the construction is not of the usual high period standard whilst the third piece stands a chance but the materials used do not look great in my opinion. In my experience, I have found more variations in the materials and construction methods of for example, party armbands than for SS armbands. The SS armbands tend to be more uniform.

    Do you think they could all possibly be Authentic Party Armbands. I was kind of thinking the same thing, the SS would have much nicer workmanship.

    No, unfortunately the second item appears to be an SS copy. Whether the third item is real or not, it too is an SS armband, not a party armband.

    The only one that I like is the unfortunately moth eaten first one. William
