Anybody know what this is?

Article about: i believe it's exactly the same thing. the only difference is that in my picture the fibers at the very edge "bunched" and in yours they are not. this is only due to the shrinkage

    i'll tell you, this has been quite an interesting thread.

    i only recognized that little piece of material because i had looked at a Kriegsmarine pennant just a week or so earlier.

    just a total coincidence. i had to think and think about where i saw it, but in the end it just came like a bolt out of the blue... the pennant. i looked at it again, and sure enough...

    It's called knowledge, my friend.

    No, I am sure, it had not been cuted or teased. I am sure this piece is just original untouchted how it had been produced.

    I thought a forum is an open discussion board, a space for public expression.
    Iím a bit disappointed by your interpretation.

    Gary, I'm sorry, you may have misunderstood me, I have no idea in which country you reside, and things may be lost in nuances.
    It is back to the drawing board for ME, to try and research this item.

ID:	357166I'm very pleased at all the great responses and thank you guys. Upon reading these I decided to go back and take a closer look at the item. I saw a piece of the gold bullion wire folded under one end of the tassels or frays maybe now. I gently unfolded it to view in this pic but what also caught my attention was that if this wire was pulled in the pattern it goes it would keep exposing more and more tassel. What i'm getting at is if this was cut from a bigger piece of same material it could over time work loose and expose frays but if so where is the extra bullion wire that came unwrapped? So i'm thinking this piece was intentionally cut from a bigger piece and intentionally frayed to look better and the extra bullion was trimmed off. Also if you look at the swastikas you ll see on each end the start of another swastika cut off short of being full. I think if this were a bookmark then it probably wouldnt have a partial swastika at each end and might have something in place to keep the bullion from fraying further which this doesn't and the length of fraying would be even which these aren't. Hopefully that makes sense and thanks to all who helped, especially tempelhof with the keen eye. Click image for larger version.

    what's so great about this small item is that it has a little beauty, a little puzzle, and a little history all in one.

    we put a bit of a dent in the puzzle, but there's still just enough left to keep us wondering.

    thanks for posting this. it was great to think about.
