    With respect D I don't personally think that such a scenario would apply to a person entitled to wear this level of rank. It just doesn't make sense to me. The rune onto which that silver material is attached is the standard type which of course puts this patch squarely within the regulated period and this absolutely begs the question of why on earth a DJ leader at this level would put together an insignia which is so different to the authorised item he was copying? It's not even close and would stand out a mile.

    The fact that he was copying it (if we assume that we are looking at such an item here) is of course proof in itself that he was aware that an authorised version already existed so ignorance about whether authorised insignia existed is unrealistic in my opinion. All of this means to me that if we assume that the patch is period (I have no reason to suspect that it isn't) then we must assume that it had a different purpose i.e. that it has nothing to do with high-level DJ ranks. Entertaining the idea that this patch is a home-made copy of the Oberjungbannführer/Gebietsjungvolkführer patches is a stretch too far for me. My opinion only though and by no means an attempt to stifle further discussion :)

    yes i seen it ;) hence my asking! what troubles you with it? much of this collecting lark doesnt make sense!! just ask Jo! there is also much much still unknown! why dont we see other oberbann colours with a silver trese, i mean surely an ob 5 or 6 rune would pull much more moneys instead of just an ob 1 but we never see any they are all the orange/red rune

    This is albeit

    You guys mean this one? Yes, it was for sale at "This Is Militaria"

    thisis.JPG

    I say This Is.. because that is how each and every item description that they sell is prefixed... "This is..." and in 90% of the time the word albeit will be included as well....

    I like this patch personally. I have a couple of these Oberbann 1 patches with the silver ring of litzen. In hand the litze does appear to be period done to me. For what purpose? I am not sure on that. There is speculation why it was done, but it's not anything that is written in stone or regulations. Perhaps one day we will have a conclusive answer and not assumption or guesswork. I've only seen this litzen on the Oberbann 1 patches so I would speculate that it was done sometime after the demise of the Oberbann structure.

    Edit: Jo he uses "somewhat rare" and "simply a nice" a lot too hehehe.

    I like the look of that one also. Still a mystery as to what its purpose was but I agree with previous posters that it's definitely not for a DJ Gebietsjungvolkfuehrer. Those patches were of much higher quality and of course the materials were differnt too.

    agree with you! i think its for something entirely different to the DJ leader rank and it was only for that bann, but again pure speculation! you are the man that will first find out so keep us posted mate!
