    Default Kriegs Flag 150 x 250 authentic?

    Hey everyone. I'm considering buying this salty old Kriegsmarine Battle Flag. Wanted to see if any red flags came up on your end aside from the condition issues.

    I remember seeing a list of ship types that would have flown the various sizes and 150 x 250 was a bit unclear to me.

    Anyway, is $200 a good price in this condition? Been wanting a battle flag for my collection for a long time. Thanks for your help.

    It's an original, no doubt there...I also think the price is good considering the flag's condition...
    Just my opinion, Glenn

    Agree, Looks good so far and not a bad price at all, although the pictures are pretty small and lack fine detail.

    I paid double that for one a few years back in much better condition with provenance. How many rows of edge stitching are there? Close ups of the color edges also would help to authenticate.
