    An Old Guard flag would date to no
    earlier than the Oct 1933 AH order.
    IMO the rarest flag is the only known
    1of4 surviving 1923 1st RPT DE standards.
    OFW
    (below) Oldest known surviving 1p DE,
    the 1923 SA Munchen II Standard - later
    renamed Regiment Fritz Todt, the last DE.

              Confused. Is the one you acquired or hope to acquire just like the one in the photo that was presented on June 15, 1937 or like the illustration OFW posted? One wonders if it was kept in Munich on a permanent basis, or did RL Ley take it with him on his many Alten Garde Treffen in the various Gaues?
              A glance in the Org Buch answered my question. The Alten Garde Fahne was taken out every year to accompany the 500 oldest service Party Leaders on their trips throughout the Gaues. Must have been a lot of wear and tear on it as they used all manner of transportation: boats, omnibuses and trains.

                  JW:
                  The Old Guard Flag in question matches the large size
                  and proportions of the post #4 photo, shown on left.
                  It has 7 pole mounting loops, as in the posted photo,
                  and not the 8 as shown in the graphic, p#4 on right.
                  Gilt fringe tress edge has small woven swastikas, and
                  is something I've never seen before on any fahnen.
                  This OG Flag is worth the wait to view it's superb details.
                  I feel privileged to have seen some pre-public views.

                  ...........(below) Post #4 photo & graphic repeated.
                  1933 year DE box name turned forward, 1937 OGF created.

                    Thank you for the explanation OFW. Funny how the OrgBuch messed up the image of the AG Fahne.

                          And now the mystery deepens. Did the 7-ring version follow the 8-ring version or are there even two versions???

                            I assume that the "Old Guard Flag" was stored at the Brown House, as the "Blood Banner" was. Was the "Old Guard Flag" placed into the permanent charge of any one individual, the way the "Blood Banner" was in the personal care of Jakob Grimminger? Was the "Old Guard Flag" carried at any specific functions or used in any specific way, such as the "Blood Banner" was used in the ceremony known as the "Consecration of New DE Standards?" And was there a unique pole top/finial produced for the "Old Guard Flag" akin to that of the "Blood Banner?"

                            Since the "Old Guard Flag" was second only in uniqueness and respect to the "Blood Banner," I expected to see this piece discussed in some length in Ulric of England's 1997 book, "Deutschland Erwache," though I can find no reference to this flag there.

                                Hello Br. James:
                                IMO, oddly there doesn't seem to be much info
                                available on the trooping use, storage location,
                                or otherwise regarding the "Old Guard Flag".
                                I've only seen one period photo of the actual
                                7 pole loop flag, and the 8 loop graphic in the
                                Org Book (posts #4/#5/#23). Post #17 shows
                                IMO a gilt "Old Guard Flag" top with Gahr RZM-87
                                marking, which I believe makes the case for the
                                existence of more than one "Old Guard Flag", as
                                the post #1 flag also has a gilt 2P NSDAP top too.
                                ........OFW
