    The construction of this piece is quite poor. From what I see in the images, I would not wnat it.

    I sorry Eric its just the guy refuses to listen to me that its not real. I sent him an email telling that his "flag" wasnt original and here was his response
    Think what you want. This was found in a chest on my grandparents farm in central Illinois in 1981. There were 3 of these. I've already sold 1 on CL to an individual who has been in the 3rd Reich collectibles since the 1960s. After he received it from me he attested to the fact it was the "real deal" from World War II and was delighted to get it. He explained the smaller flags like these are more in demand now as they are easier to display and incorporate into a collection. My father did bring these home from Germany in 1946.

    Ryan-
    All words that mean nothing and validate nothing. The item speaks for itself. If period, it is home made and poorly done. Things like this in these days have no value as no one can validate the item. Let the owner think what he wants. Anyone who has been collecting since the 1960's would have no need for this. In those days, flags were everywhere and cheap. The story makes no sense. This is an opinion from someone who has been collecting since the 1950's
