Iceland National Party. The NS party in Iceland from 1934-1944, though it drastically went into hiding after the British invaded Iceland in 1940.

And the final armband.... A nice SA/HJ medic armband. Interesting stamping by the SA Oberst Fuhrung saying it's their property and the RZM tag.

Thanks Kyle. You are amassing quite a collection. Are the ink stamps on the reverse of the Feuerwehr the norm for these?

They are on the front, but they were exposed to bad conditions. When I got them they were covered in mud, mold, spiderwebs, etc. So the ink bled or faded badly on them probably because of that. A shame but still nice bands overall for now. I'll have to put an updated picture of the collection the collections forum soon I think. As well as some of the other branches of stuff I went into as well

Wow, some nice stuff here!

Well, here are 2 armbands I've been wanting for 30 years! I had a large item I liked but was too big to take care of. So, a big trade took place and I ended up with these. I am very happy and so is the other guy with what he got from me for sure!

Ukrainian and Galatian armbands!

Many of these were found mint unissued after the war because many never got issued. Supply problems, logistics etc. and some of us benefited from all that!

They are 'Flak Helpers' armbands. But labor/construction units wore them as well as other units.
These are rare and again I'm very happy to have them. And,,they are easy to store, take care of and make a display with..

Mike,,it took some heavy horse trading! He got a really nice piece for them. Glad he got it at least it was for his personal collection.
The armbands,,like I said, Always wanted them,,they are small, easy to take care of, easy to display, and easy to transport..
My last 2 dream items are ,,the 14th SS collar tab,,and arm shield. 2 tough to get and expensive pieces!

Well I now have my very first armband- so something to post at least! Going to go along with the beginnings of a volunteer display, largely foreign/eastern... And no I have never even owned a regular party armband or anything-- although the very first piece of tr I ever saw was a silk party armband my fathers uncle brought back from Europe- it was in bad shape and my dad asked me what I thought about it... And I said "it's awesome! Do u have one of those hats with a point too??" (He didn't...anyway here's the armband-

Which green one? The white words or the black ones?

Thanks guys! I have 1 more on the way still which is a really interesting one. Won't say what it is until it arrives to make it a surprise haha.

Gaspare, I think I have about 66 including the one on the way since there are a few that are pretty rough that I need to get new examples of eventually that aren't shown here. Getting closer and closer to the 100 mark!

Those guys were basically predecessors of the Luftschutzpolizei, which were in charge of firefighting and rubble clearing in the major cities in case of air raids. They were replaced in 1942 when the organization couldn't keep up with their use and were merged with the Luftschutz.

There is a whole series of ranks, but the organization wasn't too large and didn't last long so anything higher up than the standard member armband is next to impossible to find, though there is a lot of period photos of them in wear for some reason. Here is the chart

Kyle, nice additions. Thanks.

I read that there are period catalog references of printed HJ armbands.

Have you knowledge of such information?

Gotta add a few bands to here again.

Printed HJ armbands did exist, however they are early production run pieces. They were banned from use later on if I remember correctly. So the one you attached with a later stamp, inside even (usually is a bad sign, some exceptions however), wouldn't make sense to me.

I know, hard to tell when the stamp was added. Can't make it out either. This one has been sized down at some time in it's life then the threads removed. So it has the appearance of having been used. I'll continue to keep it on faith.
Who can say what or when an item was used or reissued? I've seen pictures of home guard wearing DJ buckles.

Looking forward to seeing what you have new.
