Original WWII German DEUTSCHE WEHRMACHT EAGLE (German Non-Members Armed Forces) Armband Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. The Army Mobilization Order of March 12TH 1937, introduced a wide variety of armbands that were worn to identify personnel performing specific duties or functions for the Armed Forces. Most of the armbands were worn on the upper left sleeve of uniformed or non-uniformed personnel and were worn only while the individual was performing the specific duty or function identified by the armband. The “Nicht-Wehrmachtangehörige”, (Non-Members of the Armed Forces), armband was one of the armbands introduced with the Army Mobilization Order of March 12TH 1937 and was designed for wear by combatants who were not members of the Armed Forces. Woven golden yellow cotton construction armband with a black, machine woven, stylized national eagle with out-stretched wings, clutching a wreathed, canted swastika in its talons to the obverse center. The top and bottom edges of the armband have interwoven rows of reinforcement stitching and the reverse of the armband has a machine stitched, vertical, seam. In good but worn condition some soiling bright colors (photo look a bit faded but the arm band is really bright yellow and vibrant). Nice example issued with expected used U.S. Veteran bring-back condition. Gettysburg Museum Certified (COA) provided. Rare 100% Guaranteed to be authentic pre-1945. Sold for historic purposes only.
