Product Description: This NSDAP Two Piece Armband With RZM Tag is an attractive piece. It’s made from a fairly sturdy cotton material. The swastika roundel on this one is Bevo machine woven construction, which has been affixed to the armband with nice zig-zag machine stitching. The roundel shows typical age toning as well as one small, match head sized hole near the left edge. The long ends of this armband are finished with machine stitching, and it is also sewn together in the back. Inside, this armband features a partial original RZM paper tag. This armband was worn, but enough of the tag has survived that the Reichszeugmeisterei logo is still clearly visible. This NSDAP Two Piece Armband With RZM Tag has no stains, holes or other damage, and remains in excellent condition overall.
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.
