    Default Sold flag with intel stamp -- thoughts?

    This flag recently sold, and I don't know what to think about it. Looks to be a weird mixture of Hangul and partial Japanese. That, plus the style of intel. stamp is one I am not familiar with. Thoughts?

    Fake. Don’t know if the flag itself is authentic, but the “Japanese” is a combination of poorly copied kanji and “Orientaleese”.

    I was following that flag also and thought the written Kanji didn't look right to me.

    I'm skeptical if even the flag itself is original, it could be, but I've never seen a Japanese flag with square corner reinforcements, I've only ever seen triangular. There's plenty of these flags out there, so always best to avoid one if there's any doubts about it.

    Thanks, all. Didn't seem to make sense, but wanted other opinions on it.
