Kriegsmarine Battle Flag

Article about: I have been offered this flag for 270\\$, it is kind of salty but the red stamp means it was used in the war. Tell me your opinions! all the best, Stefan

    well the sizing on the side says it is 1 m by 1.7 m meaning it could've well been flown on a uboat, what do u guys think of the price??

    You have mis-read the list: this is too big to have been used on a U Boat.

    The price is good even considering the moth damage.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Regardless of the vessel that this flag was used on, it appears to be a nice original period piece. Some my say that the price is a little high, but I would suggest that you buy it if you want it. They don't come around every day so it could be a good chance to pick up a nice item. Good luck!

    Regards,

    On the list it is #6 - Torpedo boat !

    Asking $270 - Offer $250. ( I've seen these as high as $750 )
    It would already be at my place at $250/$270.

    I wouldn't hesitate.........!

    Somewhere I read a list that contained all the sizes for particular ships, boats etc,
    but I don't remember where. Might have been here or Google ?

    Red stamp is just a variation I suppose, but the markings and re-enforcing
    stitching look good to me. I got burned by a fake of this type, so you
    wake up pretty quickly as to what to look for !

    They are named 'Reichkriegsflagg', or 'National War Flag', and without
    the Eagle-M stamp were used for a variety of purposes
    ie: schools, businesses, etc.........
