A rare, early and beautiful National Socialist German Students League NSDStB Armband (Nationalsozialistischer Deutscher Studentenbund Kampfbinde). This is the official pattern armband was worn on the upper left sleeve of most all NSDStB uniforms as the identifying organizational insignia. It is constructed out of multiple pieces of machine embroidered black cotton thread stitched to a white cotton diamond, with outlying thread, which is stitched to a red and dual line white cotton backing. The rectangular shaped obverse features a separately applied and centrally placed black mobile swastika that is stitched to a white rhombus diamond, that is bordered and is in front of two white horizontal lines and a red cotton backing. The top and bottom have been folded over and re-enforced with stitching. The back has been folded and stitched together to size. It measures approximately 6 1/2 inches wide by 4 1/8 inches tall. It shows slight age toning. A very rare armband!
