    It is not the most elegant of designs... road kill springs to mind.


    The original PIAST eagle on which the "Kurica" was supposed to be based was at least more eagle-like. I wonder who drew up the "Kurica" eagle design... is the person recorded in history?

    Confirmed by the auction house, the flag is a 1977 reproduction.

    Dear Mr. ...........

    thank you for contacting us.

    Yes sir, the flag is a modern reproduction.
    We just discovered today an inscription (red on red, so it was really hard to notice) saying it is a copy made in the seventies.
    We already uploaded a photography of the inscription on our website and updated the lot description.

    Revised the description but not the estimate which I am sure will fall well short of that now.
