    I think it's a genuine period piece - the material seems a lot finer
    or lighter than any of the fakes I've ever seen - and if it were
    newer, it would likely not fade with todays 'colour-fast'
    paints and dyes.........

    I sent some photos of my new flag to a respected Italian collector (in Italy) who has published multiple reference books.

    He says:
    The flag is original, and very beautiful! It has the shield of Savoy, but the most
    important that this is surmounted by the crown, and identifies it as a
    Military flag used by the Italian Army. It 's very nice and original, and I congratulate you because it is not easy to find a flag with the crown.

    Dating the flag is not easy because the same type of flag was used from the first to the second world war and the design and colors did not change.
    SCORE!

    Thanks, Alan!

    Believe it or not, it came from Brooklyn, NY via ebay for ~$80! Judging by the seller's other items, he specializes in estate sales.

    Thanks, Green and Jerry!

    My strategy for finding this flag on ebay was to use very unspecific search criteria... "old crown flag" "old Italy flag". It still seems as if people find old items and figure they'll make a quick buck by tossing them up on ebay. Less than an hour worth of research would have helped the seller accurately list it... and in turn probably get A LOT more money for it.

    I've received numerous offers for it so far... I feel so lucky to have this!

    It is also a rare variant... very rarely seen on the collector's market... It'll cost you at least $2.
