Jewish HOLOCAUST concentration camp armband, Yellow star German, WW2Extremely rare German WW2 Kriegsmarine Navy U-boat 9th Flotilla's sawfish Armband This item depicted in the images below is a German WW2 Kriegsmarine U-boat armband from U-boat 9th Flotilla's. This armband is in pretty good shape with very unusual design of emblem. One of the more famous emblems, this became the emblem of the 9th Flotilla in Brest, one the most active combat units of the war. Thus is was seen on many boats, most notably U-96 and became famous in the movie "Das Boot". 11 U-boats displayed this emblem: U-96, U-217, U-230, U-377, U-407, U-450, U-591, U-659, U-664, U-739 and U-954. The armband has no mooting on it anywhere, the color is crisp, all the stitching is correct. This particular armband was made in a heavy fabric. On the last images for sample I put an example of the U-96 badge being worn on a U-Boat Commanders White Topped Cap and the photo of U-96 with emblem. This particular armband passed very important test - it does not glow under the black lamp (all fabrics after 1945 glow under the black light) - please look at the image (for compare I put on the last image item which glow under a black lamp).Also the piece have an old smell that old authentic cloth keeps. More over the armband passed 2nd test - burned test (old fabric after burn become a proud, modern fabric become a resin).Recently the same armband has been sold on eCRATER in France for 800 EURO ($1150 USA) - please look at the last image.Estimate price for this item is $550 - $600.
