    Nazi Armband

    Post by Opticianphil on Sat Mar 05, 2011 9:53 pm

    Years ago I purchased this armband at a flea market. I have been unable to identify it because the Swastika is actually sewn all the way through the band. You can see the stitching of the swastika and the white disk from the back. The band is made of cotton with the swastika in what feels like felt. It has a damaged RZM tag. All you can read from that is M No:, and a partial number stamped on the tag. I have attached two pictures, any help will be greatly appreciated.


    Thank you.

    How do you want to identify it?

    Also, could you please post an intro thread? Thanks

    I would like to know a possible time frame, and what kind of soldier wore it. I would like to collect more things around this item.

    Will post intro this evening. Very Happy

    I managed to get one a while back, not sure if it is original but I think it is. Here is a picture of what an intact tag would look like.


    I may still have a website that has some armbands cataloged so let me try and find that.

    You'll have much better luck getting info from this forum: http://70.87.163.50/forums/index.php?s=da996ea8dc1c5895f5c040f24d62da8c

    Real experts on ww2 nazi stuff. Your armband would be in the timeframe from the 30s-45 OR it could be a replica.

    That is a political armband - it was Not worn by anyone in the military.
    Because of the construction and the RZM tag I'd say it was worn by someone in one of the para-military organizations = SA, SS, NSFK, NSKK or some such.

    I agree with these guys, to be a bit more specific, I believe it is NSKK, maybe NSKOV, it is basically a mid-war era version. Nice find
