    I wonder if it would have been cheaper if it was listed correctly.

    Quite a different thing than the description then. Well spotted.
    They could also have described it as being Polish and belonging to Pilsudski as its red and white

    Yes indeed!! But "Freikorps" would attract more and sell better...!!
    Like Jerry mentioned!
    But I like it and might as well start a Fr WWI armband collection as it seem they had more nice different paterns of armbands for different troops.
    Thise one is the most current, but the condition is a A+, so not a bad addition.
