    I would be unsure of its authenticity, too. I have never seen anything like this before. But maybe the experts on HJ armbands know if this is original or "fantasy crap", as someone said in the forum the other day.

    This armband shows up from time to time. The Einsatz were boys of the highest caliber in the HJ. This armband would not pass muster for them IMO. They were to have a new uniform on hand to be used when called to Einsatz duties.

    I posted the following in another thread on these armbands and I stand by it

This makes sense because the DJ also provided personnel for the Einsatzgefolgschaft so with that in mind why give the HJ members an additional armband? It makes no sense so in lieu of photographic or other evidence I will continue to view these armbands as fantasy products.
