SA SPORT ARMBAND
This is a nice original example of the armband type known to collectors as the SA Sports Armband. This was in fact intended for wear by members of the SA-Wehrmannschaft, an SA organization that conducted paramilitary training.
These are usually found in unissued condition; this one appears to be a worn piece with nice patina a character. It’s made out of thin red cotton fabric, with a machine applied, Bevo machine woven roundel that depicts the SA Sports Badge in brown and gold thread. The roundel is missing some threads in a few spots, perhaps from wear. The long edges of this armband are finished with machine stitching, and the ends are also joined in the back, with a typical "French seam".
This SA Sports Armband retains great original color, with even age and usage toning throughout, but no holes or tears. It is an eye-catching armband, that displays very well.
