I figure that since the one on WAF was successful that I would start one here. Any armband from any branch/organization of the TR can be posted. I'll start with my few armbands.... The same armband can be posted as many times as someone has it and make sure it is authentic....

Civilian in service.....


Early NSDAP..... Looks to be uniform removed because of the stitching still there from the uniform...


Printed NSDAP....


DRK that is named.....



Wool NSDAP.....


Traffic Director....


Decontamination Service of the RLB......

This NSDAP armband came in a bunch of vet-stuff about a year ago.
It has the typical red cotton sleeve band but the circle and swaz are leather!

Any ideas if this is for some special purpose or just a manufacturers variation?

Appreciate any thoughts.

Now that's something new! Never saw one like that. Maybe a early variation??

I'm sure I have a black armband somewhere. Used for funerals I guess? Are they common? Thanks

I don't know much about them and haven't seen one that I would say is original so this may be interesting. If one did exist then it is very rare....

Kyle, I've been meaning to ask you why the reference to the Bahnhofswache armband as a salesman sample?

I think it is a salesman sample because for the way the ends are. They are sewn in in a strange way that looks like it could be attached to a board. I just got 2 more like it and I'll try to post them later today or tomorrow and show the strange stitching....
