    Nazi kriegsflagge signs of being a fake

    Hello everyone i would like to make a thread for educational purposes , for me and for all other people that are new collectors. I would like to show with my thread some signs that a nazi kriegsflagge is fake or authentic.

    Below i will exhibit all the knowledge i have collected in my short collector experience on nazi kriegsflagge.Of course some things might be wrong so please educate me.

    Possible signs of a flag being a fake:

    1) Having the word reichskriegsflagge or something else instead of
    Kr. Fl. (very unsure about this one)

    2) Having the dimensions in meters instead of cm. (2x3.35 instead of 200x335)

    3)Having the wrong dimensions , from what i know the right dimensions in cm are

    a)50x85
    b)80x135
    c)100x170
    d)150x250
    e)200x335
    f)300x500
    g)400x670
    h)450x750

    anything else should be considered fake.

    4)Having a weird (too narrow corners) or wrong placed iron cross.

    5)Not having reiforced corners on both sides of the flag. (those square like reinforcing near the rope where the flag was attached).Im not sure if those reinforcements where only on the kriegsmarineflags.

    6)Not having those 8 stiches on the side of the flag and the 6 stiches on the top and bottom of it (with red coloured thread).

    Thats some of the things i have in mind about not being authentic.

    ***ALL THE ABOVE MIGHT BE WRONG , SO PLEASE CORRECT OR ADD ANYTHING THAT NEEDS IT.ALSO ADD NEW SIGNS OF BEING A FAKE FLAG IF YOU KNOW SOMETHING MORE.

    Thank you all!

        RDF means Reichs Dienst Flagge, or
        in other words National Service Flag.
