Product Description: This original Hitler Youth Student Bund Armband is an outstanding example that would be very hard to upgrade. This pattern of armband was worn by the National Socialist German Students’ League (Nationalsozialistischer deutscher Studentenbund). This one is nicely made, multi-piece construction, all machine stitched as one would expect. The large diamond shaped swastika emblem is Bevo machine woven, and has been stitched to the red armband along with two white stripes. The fabric is typical, thin cotton, and the ends are joined in the back, as it would have been when worn on a uniform. There is no indication that this Hitler Youth Student Bund Armband has ever been worn. The colors remain nice and bright, with barely any toning at all. There are no stains, holes or other damage. The condition of this pristine armband borders on near mint. These are scarce in any condition, and very hard to find like this.




Historical Description: Nearly every military, civil, political and paramilitary organization in existence during the Third Reich used armbands. Armbands were worn on military and civilian uniforms and also on civilian clothes, from suit jackets to work clothing. They were used to denote membership in organizations, to indicate a specific role or function of the bearer, and as insignia of rank. Many organizations would change the design of their armbands over time, which added to the variety produced. These were manufactured in countless variations, ranging from simple printed bands to elaborately hand-embroidered pieces of the highest quality. Some Nazi armbands were worn by all members of large organizations and were made by the millions. Others were intended for use at a specific time and place and were unique. Many types were made in very limited numbers. Some bore metal insignia or special identifiers that indicated the wearer’s rank, unit affiliation, or nationality. Armbands were sometimes but not always marked with ink stamps by the issuing authorities.
