Great collection, Kyles.

I managed to snag a new armband for my collection this summer while in Norway.

The normal Rikshird armband is a two piece construction, but I found a one piece with the design painted on instead of sewn on.

Here are pics of the new and the old.

Very cool variation John! Painted stuff is always cool to find, as it didn't hold up well through the years from what I've seen.

Nice display Kyle. I take it the top middle riker is your KdF collection.

Kyle, off the armband topic but related to your KdF interest.

Thanks for the link. Been through this already, but the cameras and the training rifle have to be my favorite pieces!

That is one prolific collection. Congratulations on your work at finding these items.
I am probably just missing it but I don't see your clergy riker.

Wish I had a clergy riker. Still hunting one of those down in the sea of fakes.

I now total at 183 armbands.

KB, haven't heard anything about them being fantasy/fakes.. A white armband, some tank traps and a eagle. Been seeing them since the 70s. What do you have on them as far as being fantasy/fakes?
