    Looks like someone tried to clean it and the color bled through into the white. Pity they should have left it alone.

    I knew I had a pic on my HD somewhere.. Here's a woollen armband on an early Scharführer Paul. The second pic shows Obergebietsführer Emil Klein wearing an armband that has a 'thick' look to it but whether it's your type I couldn't say.

    I can't find anything in my stuff here which gives a definitive answer one way or the other as the higher leader clothing regulations I have just say 'HJ armband' (HJ Armbinde). I would think though that the unfinished look of the white strip on yours would perhaps not be an armband a higher leader would wear as you'd be able to see that gap as he moved his arm.

    great pics the one showing Gebietsführer Emil Klein looks identical
    to my example. I would think this wool type would cost considerably more than the linen type but could be a very early issue

    Nice armband Paul.It`s a real shame someone tried to wash it.
    I saw one of these that had already been sold last week but it still had the description up. i`ll see if i can find it again & post it here if i do.
