    Default German vehicle identification flag

    Picked this up from another collector. It's a neat little piece. Maybe those grease stains on the back are from a Tiger tank!

    My favorite flags because they were used. That's an excellent size as well, though I don't know today where one could display it ;) Mine is hanging on magnetic hooks on the back of my metal office door. Cool flag Zepp.

    Absolutely....easily recognizable with the metal grommets in the corners, and typically one sided. I would imagine they were basically considered consumables.

    Different shapes and sizes, I would guess depending on what size/type of vehicle they might be used on...

    Mine hangs on the wall of the room...

    I found one bunched up underneath my cased Luft survival drilling with some rolled up parachute chord. Evidently whatever worked??

    I'm about to move into a new house and I have a room ready to go for my militaria and firearms. This is definitely a great size for display and the grommets will help greatly to hang it.

    Could use one for my 37 Pontiac Staff Car.

    What do they go for?

    Now that’s cool! They seems to usually be in the $300+ range nowadays. At least for this 3’x2’ variant.
