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

    What would the correct size of the original flag be.
    As the original has never been found, there is no period source for that information. It was definitely hand embroidered as I have seen one period photograph of it. It was likely kept at the Braunhaus and brought out only for 9 November ceremonies. It was far too important to be printed as all of these fakes are. If your flag is hand embroidered, we would like to see it. If not, you are dreaming.

    Wrong construction . It is also a known fake with those stamps. Unit flags would never have an ink stamp on them from the period.
