While not pristine and pure white any longer, this is a great armband! I would say that it was never worn. It has just picked up stains from storage over the years. The front has a stain line to the right of the eagle. This same stain line can been seen on the reverse. There is also a faint hinting of the a small label on the reverse. The top center and lower right corner looks like it may have been nibbled on by a moth at one point in time. It is not bad and you should be able to see it in the photos. I like this piece as it has character! Heck, I hope I fare that well at 60+ years old. It was worn by military personnel acting as stewards during military parades. I have also heard/read that recruiters used them. I have found no pictorial or hard evidence to support or reject either suggested use. If someone out there has or knows of a photo or period documentation, please let me know. The eagle is woven onto the armband. It looks impressive if you turn the armband inside out! This one will display well. The ends are sewn together.
