Title Reichskriegsfahne (Third Reich war flag)
Nationality German
Period c 1939-45

This is the type of flag that was flown over small headquarter units in the field and used on small patrol boats and U-boats when on service. The lanyard, sadly, has been cut, evidence perhaps of the piece being looted off a building or boat, perhaps. There is what appears to be a small maker's mark, 'A/42', in the middle of the white edge.

It measures 60 x 90cm (approximately 2 x 3 ft), and is in superb condition for its age, with nice bright colour and minimal fading, perhaps because it has been kept in a linen cupboard for at least the last 20 years! It is made of high quality cotton.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
