Original German WWII NSDAP Later-War Party Armband with Dyed Insignia
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice Original German WWII :ater-War Style National Socialist Party Armband, brought home by a U.S.G.I. after the war. The National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, abbreviated NSDAP), commonly known in English as the Nazi Party, was a political party in Germany between 1919 and 1945. It was known as the German Workers' Party (DAP) before the name was changed in 1920.
The party's last leader, Adolf Hitler, was appointed Chancellor of Germany by president Paul von Hindenburg in 1933. Hitler rapidly established a totalitarian regime known as the Third Reich.
This standard armband was worn by members, and was also worn by many service members and other personnel during the war. It is in very good lightly use condition, and measures approximately 19" x 4", without being sewn together. This may mean that it was never fitted, as we do not see any evidence of pinholes in it. It is of simple construction, with a red band and a circular white patch with a dyed Hakenkreuz (Swastika) stitched to the band.
It does have age toning and some small stains on the fabric, most likely from long term storage. There is also a small hole on one side of the Swastika patch. Still a very nice example, ready to add to your collection!
