This is a great conditioned U.S. Flag armband from the Operation TORCH, the invasion of North Africa in November of 1843. A printed national colors is sewn directly to a cotton armband, and still retains the original large safety pin for securing to the uniform sleeve.
It show some fading, but very little, and overall the condition is fine.

These are much harder to find compared to the D-Day printed type on waterproof material.
