I wouldn't make a trade if the flag is really nice. Just go
and buy the piece - if it is genuine. You might post
some pics of it here for opinions.........
Well I can try later for some photos. The flag has two pin holes...has some odd substance on it in a semi large spot however all those spots are easily removeable as it appears to be on top of the fabric not sinked in.
I think size wise it is a 3by5 . overall I would say its in really good shape.
This dealer though tends to be higher priced on items so I think his offer 500-400 is better then what other offers I may get. I am unsure with condition. I would like to trade it for another neat item however its hard when I'd have to trust someone to even send it .
Check and compare hallmarkings with other similar Silverware types. Im sure its fine..and have an Idea who you might be getting it from.
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

I have never heard of the Koppen Company , who the maker is . I have photos of the flag, not sure how to post them here. I may post them on the flags part of th forum , maybe look there.
Any photos of the Goering silverware piece?

Thank you William - I was refering to the silverware piece
in question. The flag though, is very nice.........
Thanks ...so what is the value on something like this with the damage ? I have heard...200....400....
No appreciable 'damage' to the flag, but I'd say you're
in the ballpark.
First, it would be good to get pics up of the piece of
silverware you intend to trade for this nice flag.
Personally, I wouldn't do the trade, but ID'ing
the silverware as an original HG fork, spoon,
whatever, should be a big concern.........
