    When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
    An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling

    They sure want enough for it, if it is a repro! Must be THEY think it is genuine - or they are thieves. Wonder which it is?

    To be honest, and fair, it is a hard call to make, it doesn't seem to have the workmanship, or the quality you would expect to see. The runes do not look right for one, the material looks wrong too, however we could all be wrong ,as it could be real..... but for me it sure looks like the Delta fake from the 70's.

    Do look at Bob Hritz's and Bob Coleman's flags, and you will then think rather less of this piece. Units in the Allgem. SS had much different flags, as you know. This is based on an SS Hausfahne and them embellished. It strikes me as very fake.

    Hi Nic, the seller is mainly a gun dealer. Looking at his website much of the non gun related items are bad. I have seen him at shows and again many of the non gun items were bad, mainly caps.

    Cheers, Ade.
