    From what little I see this is a real/genuine flag. There should be small
    re-enforcement pieces at the corners.........
    Regards,

    Black Edelweiss: The company that made the flag, Lorenz Summa Söhne in Oberkotzau was founded in 1856 and was making flags during WWII, and The Kr. FL stamp is correct. I think you want to know if the flag was made during the Third Reich period or after the war. My guess is that it is probably a genuine flag from that period, but without seeing the flag laid out for closer examination I can't say that is certain. It could be a postwar product. I suggest that you hang the flag on a wall so that you can get a clear, sharp photo of the flag overall, and look to see if there are any stamps on it other than what you have already provided. If there are, photograph them too. I'm not sure, but I think Lorenz Summa Söhne went out of business in 1986, but I know they were still making flags up to then. For years i had a WWI Kaiserliche Marine flag they made, but it was a 1960's product. Anyway, if you can provide better photos I'm sure that one of the members will be able to tell you with certainty if the flag is authentic or not. Dwight

    Possibly $500-$600 to a collector. A dealer will pay far less
    and then want top dollar - $650-$750.

    Are we looking at two flags? Do I see 80x135 and 150x250?

    Black Edelweiss: I found this price chart and warning online:

    "This flag is currently being reproduced. It is becoming more difficult to be able to tell the fake ones from the real ones because the quality of the reproductions is improving. The collector must become familiarized with the construction style and materials employed in the manufacturing of this flag. Attention to the details is critical in order to be able to determine the authenticity of the flag."

    Luke: You have a good eye. You're right, there are two sizes shown in this post. My eyes aren't as sharp as yours, but in the full size flag photo I see ?X250 and in the other photo I see 80X135. Steve, do you see the same thing? Edelweiss, can you enlighten us on this point? Dwight
