Got this armband in a lot, fake?

New poster here, sorry for any breach of protocol, but you folks seem to be the best authority on things like this. I recently got this armband in a lot sale... is it real? If so, is it worth anything?

Welcome...
Looks good to me....based on limited photos....obviously an A-SS armband. Value more subjective, but nowadays between $300./500. US, depending on whose selling it, how fast you want to sell it, etc. Most dealers would pay about half (50/60%).... Any mothing, stains, etc. would lower the value, obviously.
Hope this helps,
John G.I
