Unit marked medical flag for Infantry Regt 66

Article about: I still see a stylized '3'. Look at the gap in the top half of the number. Either way, I'd still pass.

    Default Unit marked medical flag for Infantry Regt 66

    Hi

    This medical flag is nicely marked with an rb number, date and infantry regt it was issued too........is this to good to be true or where flags all marked up in some way ?

    Just asking because it not my usual collecting sphere....any comforting comments welcome.

    cheers

    Hi Tony.

    Yours is the second one i have seen.
    I dont think there is a lot of examples out there.
    I like the look of the flag but cant verify originality of the markings.

    Cheers

    I am suspicious. In 1941, Infanterie-Regiment 66 was redesignated Schuetzen-Regiment 66. Why would this flag be dated 1943?

    I also really dislike the RBNr. font.

    It almost looks more like 1949 than 1943...

    Yes as Wagriff said it is 1939 not 1943.

    1939 or 1949? I still see a 1943...

    Looks like 49 to me. The "9" or the "3" is abit blurred, but the Bottom tail of the number does not come up near the middle of it, but the Top tail of the number looks to come down and curls right into the middle of the body of it, making what looks to me, anyway, like a "9". There is a definite gap between the bottom part and the middle, but on the Top, it looks to curl right around and meets the body in the middle. Either way, it doesn't give me a good feeling.

    I agree with wargriff the shading on the upper part of the "3" looks way more darker then the bottom of the "3", also i see the much larger tail section of the 9.
    Thanks
