Condition: Excellent

Pattern: BeVo

SKU: JW3797 Categories , Tags ,


Product Description: This NSDAP Three Piece Armband is in a strong excellent condition, and is a nice example of a desirable construction variant for this armband type. It is made of cotton. The swastika has been constructed of two pieces of a ribbed woven black tape, as is commonly seen on wool armbands. This swastika has been neatly machine stitched to a white cotton roundel, which has itself been stitched to the body of the armband, with zig-zag stitching. The armband has been finished on the long edges with machine stitching, and is also sewn together in the back. This NSDAP three piece armband is one that was worn, and traces of the stitching once used to affix this to a sleeve are still visible at the upper and lower edges of the armband. Despite having been worn, this armband remains nice and clean, with full original color and only extremely slight age and usage toning. It’s an attractive, quality piece.



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.
