An Orts-Level Political Leader's Armband
An Orts-Level Political Leader's Armband - Measuring 128 mm x 520 mm, this fine quality armband is red wool with gold bullion and blue cord trim running the full length on both sides. A row of embroidered yellow Oakleaves, flanked by two thin yellow rules on either side appear in the centre of the armband and runs its full length. The crest consists of an embroidered black with yellow trimmed swastika sitting upon a white cotton disc trimmed in yellow. In the centre of the swastika sits a gold-colored metal pip featuring a political eagle sitting upon a swastika. The underside of the armband is marked with an upward pointing arrow but most of the type above has worn away. It is showing signs of use, uniform worn, staining on the reverse, crisp colors, in extremely fine condition.
