Thinking the one with writing on must be legit though.
So if that one is legit, maybe the others are too?

All six RKF's appear authentic to me, having correct
looking proportions and color shade. Fakes to avoid
are 60x90cm size containg clothes line rope headers.
~$300 each asking price is a bargain, especially for
the one with U.S. G.I. soldier added capture names.

Wow really? I told him I didn't want the one with the names. I thought it brought down the value.

Ditto, from as cited 2010 thread.

name details on the captured RKF.

Hi

nice lot.

I agree with Oldflagswanted.... worth about $2000 for the lot if pieced out.

If I was offered the lot... I would be comfortable at $1200. I would keep the SS belt and spange and sell the rest to reduce the cost I spent. You can likely get $1200 for the rest, and keep those two items for free.


Flags are nice and desirable display size. I use to hate writing on them when I started collecting 40 years ago. Now like them even more. Robert

I hope that flag ends up with a proper collector who will look after it and research and not with some money grabbing grifters...

Lol the flag with the signatures is really cool. The Brit helmets and modern glengarry are not worth much. I mean if its an old man who bought them back and cant afford his electricity bill you know probably $1500 ( then sell the lot for $2000 and make $500 If its some chump who got them from an estate sale then $500.
