But the swastika is printed on this one. What do you think about it?
Just few weeks ago we discussed on another forum about a very similar armband with a very fake stamp added. the owner is a member also here, maybe I should ask him to post it here. We were both convinced it was not a good one
I agree on this with garry and the other. I have seen one once. The owner was an old man and told me he was in the volksturm. He said it was his own. I thougt I could believe him...
further , I like it a lot....
thanks Max for posting your armband. now i am curious to read the comments :)
A stamp like this on an HJ armband is always cause for worry as such stamps were prohibited by regulation (as was the type of construction with printed swastika patch as seen on the WAF armband).
ref the blacklight Darin it is only a partial test and the fact that something glows in no way means it is bad as there are different reactions to many things with the blacklight. I use it mainly for threads to much variation testing anything else unless you have a control item. This armband was made in the millions last ditch and very little will comply to the norm
the stamp on the hj is totally bogus never happened no reason to stamp these
Agreed about the blacklight Paul. It still makes me uneasy when I see items that glow.
50 50 chance you are looking at shine not glow
On the UV test I agree with you guys. Some people regularly use it to test postcards and pictures, but I can tell you that I have some repro cards printed 10 years ago not glowing!
I just purchased a printed armband that was lined with a white cotton material. It shows some age and pin holes all along the edges where some thing had been pinned to it.
The white thread used in sewing the lining material glows. Nothing else does. Can I get some opinions? Thanks.
