BACKGROUND: The NSDAP had utilized the basic identifying swastika armbands as early as 1922 to be worn by party members at all rallies or political functions. Shortly afterwards, (circa 1923), Political Leader's began wearing a new pattern armband with additional stripes that indicated functional positions within the party. In 1939 a second pattern of Political Leader's armbands were introduced which denoted administrative or operational functions and level of government.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Roughly 13cm tall and 53cm in length, armband features a heavy red wool base with central white rayon circular field with canted, black, machine woven rayon swastika to the center. Both the white circular field and the swastika are un-bordered. Both the top and bottom edges of the armband are piped in white rayon piping. The armband represents a Politischer-Leiter-Anwärter, (Political Leader Candidate) at the Kreisleitung level.
