CLEAN 3RD REICH WWI VETRN LEAGE ARMBAND KYFFHAUSERBUND
VET CAPTURED
Sweet. I was garage sailing a long time ago and saw this man and simply asked if he was a veteran.

Yes, 86th Infantry Division. And did he have some nice items. Here we some of the items I kept, all will be offered in a grouping. He took photos, and souvenirs and had the facts to back it up with.

Company A, 341st Infantry. Taken home from combat.

What I remember most about my interview with Private Walter Anderson, who later retired as an FBI agent in Salt Lake City, was his relating of a story on the taking of an Iron Cross 1st Class from an SS Officer who was leading a group of Volkstrum the Air Force had just bombed.

He was pretty torn up and frazzled by it all. The story was - "Boy, was he pissed" when Private Anderson took the Iron Cross from him, and his Belt Buckle as well. Both of which are offered here for sale, as well as most of the Private's combat souvenir memorabilia in one group.

Field taken in the act of war in April of 1945, just before they moved into Austria. You cannot upgrade over anything in this grouping by sheer documentation.

One of only a dozen or so true, war taken large groupings that I have been personally responsible for bringing to light over the years. It has my guarantee, as the Author of historic texts Tiger Patterns and Seeds of Victory.

In any regard, a beautiful item, no defects, no soiling, only true aged grace. Looks like 14.5 inches in circumference, by 3.9 inches tall. No rips, tears or repairs and no hidden surprises.

Looks like wool and has NO moth damage. The patch in the center is the desirable, BeVo woven, not the cloth printed one. Really nice shape. One spot of era dirt that chips off with the fingertip, Iíd keep it on as this item is 1000% guaranteed as an original, and guaranteed taken in combat.

The armband is of the enlisted ranks of the NS-Reichskriegerbund (RKB), the league of World War One veterans. The BeVo embroidered shield of the Kyffhauserbund with swastika below is the "lighthouse" emblem was the official logo of the Reichskriegerbund whose historical antecedents originated from the Kyffhauserbund, one of the earlier World War One veteranís groups that was phased out by the Nazi Party in 1936. Clean and pristine. Perfect for any collection or display!

I show the photo the soldier took of many of his souveniers laying on a bed, this armband among the effects, but the photo is not part of this arrangement, as it is within a great and detailed photo album from this vet that I have need to keep together.SEE THIS VETS MANY OTHER ITEMS!
