    i know nothing about SS flags or their markings. i can say it looks to be well made. and i like the uneven stitching. beyond that i'd need to see the material better. the prolific markings would make me want to research it more before buying. but thats just an my observation.

    Never seen one with so many clear markings, so that would concern me.

    We do have a specialist flag and pennant sub forum. Have a look there, as we have many examples posted of original flags. My advice is to avoid SS flags. 99% of them on the market are fake.
