    Default Soviet Flag, WW2 Pattern

    Hello folks. My most recent purchase, bought on impulse from Espenlaub Militaria:

    A Soviet flag, advertised as being WW2 pattern, although Espenlaub admitted it could be an immediate postwar example. Unlike almost every other flag of this type I've seen, the hammer and sickle and star are painted/stenciled on, as opposed to being stitched. The whole thing has a very Spartan, no frills look to it. It has no hanging attachments other than a stitched-over sleeve on the left edge.

    Would be interested to know if this is likely to have seen use with the Red Army or other services during the war. Even if it hasn't, it's a nice example in my opinion, and it displays very well with my Soviet WW2 small arms collection.

    Regards, B.B.

    Giving this one a little update. Seems it was overlooked when I posted it, and I don't want to start another topic featuring the same piece.

    Many thanks, B.B.

    Hello,
    I cann't see from the photo myself what kind of paint is used.
    Is it rubber based? If so, then I think it is a much later production.
    Just a thought to support the thread.

    It looks as if it was applied with a stencil. I wouldn't know how to determine if it was rubber based or not.

    I am sceptical. But let's see what other, more experienced, people have to say.
