Authentic "Old Guard" flag??

Article about: Anyone have any info or opinions on this flag? I've done some quick Google-ing and seen some articles about the "Old Guard" and this design being an early 1930's, early NSDAP party

    It is a fake - guaranteed. The size is incorrect. Flags were never made in 60X90........!

    How would you know if you had a real one of these, and what would the current price be..
    This is an important flag and would have been manufactured with the best hand work of the period. That type of hand embroidery can not be matched today. How do you determine the price on a one of a kind item? Welcome to the Forum
