I just noticed the concern of the stadtwacht side being on the inside of the armband. Look how the top and bottom has the fold over on the earlier part of the armband...

Thanks for your help Vern! Not sure why I didn't find that in my search. If you saw this armband for sale would you buy it?

An interesting armband reissued for postwar use. If the price is right, it would be a good addition to a collection wink

Or perhaps vice-versa. The Ordnungsdienst/PDM marking appears to me to be pre-III Reich and it was reissued in 1944/45 to the Stadtwach of the city.

So it would rather be a very early stadtwacht instead??

No. The Stadtwach was an end of war/1944 creation to supplement simple police functions. But they were sucked int the Volkswehr in 1945. This was apparently an older armband found in the Police Department in Munich and recycled as a Stadtwach armband in the end.
