Hello GT:
I note that a number of these Opfer rune banners
have recently become available, thus I'm skeptical
as to their authenticity. All appear to be fake IMO.

It's not in my possession. The gentleman that has it is a reputable collector, and I'm sure would black light it if I asked though.

The rune represents self sacrifice.

So, those that died at The Putsch "sacrificed" their lives for The Reich...I guess.

Self Sacrifice - going hungry. Making sacrifices to a greater cause or good.

would like to know this also. Would like to see it offered as such in those days.
In early price-lists such type of flag was not ever being included!
I wonder who "invented" this name?
