    i was watching this as well! Very cool flag! Buuuuuuuuuut, a bit pricey, even for it being so unique, IMO. I guess it all boils down to what someone would pay for it. Very unique piece nonetheless.

    Very nice Hinomaru. I've never seen one with handprints before but, as Hinomaru flags are a fascinating collecting subject in themselves, I understand why somebody would pay that for it.

    Once upon a time, before my present business commitments, I'd have jumped at it myself!

    Wonderful flag, the price compared to TR seems very reasonable.

    When I see handprints, I usually think "SUMO" ....



    It would be interesting to discover if those on the flag were a sumotori's handprints ... but I didn't see an autograph; and, there was nothing available to judge the scale of the prints. If they were unusually large, they could well be a sumo player's.

    The seller said the handprints are tiny, likely that of a child, flag dimension was 16x21 and some of the kanji was ship's names and battles.

    I thought it was a high price too. All it takes is a few bidders who want it. Sad to think those small hand prints could be the owners children

    Guy, I was thinking the same thing with the sumo prints. I ran into a collector in Japan who told of a Japanese flag with several sumo wrestler handprints and signatures (must have been a large flag!). I shudder to think how much something like that would go for on the market!
