Kriegsmarine Desk Flag? Naval Pennant?
Been awhile since I have been into an antique store. I took Jeep out for a ride today as Summer has hit in MN finally. Came across a Kriegsmarine Table Pennant (Kriegsmarine Standard). Looks to be authentic to me by age, smell, look and feel but thought I would run by the crew on here. I have many armbands but only a few small pennant flags. Anyone seen this one before? I have not seen many other than 1 other online. Asked the old timer what he was asking. $500.00 was his reply. He stated they are rare. I thought it was interesting that whomever nailed it to the black stand rod did so with the wreath / with swastika being upside down in orientation. Oops!
What do you guys think? Below the pictures of my jeep is the only other one I could find for sale in England. They were asking $415.00 US. Not really interested in buying this but thought I would run past my fellow cloth experts for opinions.

Hi Kirk. Never seen this little flag before, and it's very
odd that it was attached upside down - must be a
patriotic item, but I wouldn't expect the price
to be that high. Maybe under $100 ?
( Nice to see you've got the jeep out
and running.........! )
Nice KM table pennant, the KM examples don't turn up too often, very nice !
