    I would like to see closer and clearer pictures of the grommets..

    I have not seen this spread of grommets before and based on the placement this would be a vertical hanging banner..

    With that said I have not seen too many SS flags where the SS runes are not enclosed in a white circle. There are some designs of the Runes that are without a white circle but they tend to be much longer and thinner..

    I am not getting a good feeling.. But I am currently away from my flag reference material..

    Be cautious when someone tells you it's real without some sort of direct provenance and even then be skeptical..

    This would be one of the easier banners to fake, so as Smitty says, insist on close up photos and inquire about any provenance.

    These flags are around, probably more plentiful than the roundel one that you are referencing Smitty. The also did come in a variety of shapes and sizes, of course a lot better photos are needed to judge the authenticity of this one. They are used a lot at political events, Foreign unit rally's , swearing sermonise, Training camps (Bad Tölz ect)

    Some examples of the differing uses and shapes bellow.

    A good friend had one of these. It was maybe 60% of the length of this banner. It had one good size Grommet in each corner.

    Compared to the photos posted by Morris and the size of the Runes on the flag that was posted I am still skeptical..

    @Morris

    Thank you for the additional photos and I guess I should have elaborated a little more, that although I know that the larger Lager flags and some Concentration Camp flags were without the circled runes something about the size of these runes to me is suspicious, as well as the grommet fixtures..

    Good Morning!
    I asked the seller for the additional photos of the grommets. As soon as I get the photos I will add them here. Thanks in advance for your opinions.
