        Not 100% sure if that's it but looks that way...

          T_E:
          Likewise not sure if period, header has track weave row, but both
          it and RKF field material appears rather light weight. So would like
          to see whole flag, also stamp is poorly applied with overprint edge.

                  #23, example from my collection

                  #23, Brest U-Boat Pen US Colonel captured 1944, sold to me Vallejo GS 1970 for $20.

                  Brest France during WW2 had U-Boat Pens, Mare Island CA made subs & USN flags.

                    #39
                    Ben,

                    Any idea of what firms were producing the 4 X 4's and swallow tails?
                    Hawaii, mountains, waterfalls, beaches and too much damn traffic!

                      about Army unit flags ???

                      Rich:
                      Interesting question, but not much available on same as Army
                      unit flags were not maker marked, at least those I've seen.
                      Prior to the model-1890 Imperial unit flags, there was a family
                      of court painters who did the German flags. In 1882 the firm
                      of Fahnen Fleck in Hamburg was founded that featured hand
                      embroidery products, which IMO was the primary manufacturer
                      of the ~500 circa WW2 German Army unit flags. The sole source
                      of the Army unit flag eagle teardrop pole tops was the Berlin
                      firm of Kraas Bildgiesserie (foundry) established in 1883. Modern
                      German unit flag tops were made by list #3, Bonner Fahnen, Bonn.

                            common to rare ???

                            Here are IMO the ranking of makers from common to rare, based on
                            those I've seen over my ~40 years of collecting "real" old flags.
                            Again, feel free to add more examples with confirmation photos (*).
