FLAGS #50888C Artillery Regiment Swallowtail Standarte with Streamers & Army Honor Gorget

This outstanding offering is quite an honor to be able to present to the collecting community. By way of militaria collectibles, I feel that this grouping would be the highlight of even the most advanced collections.

The Army Artillery standarte is in magnificent condition, starting with its bright red satin-like fabric. It measures about 32 inches wide to the tip of its two swallowtail endings. The width of the fabric is 20 inches. The three edges are further decorated with 2 inch long aluminum bullion fringe, all remaining in perfect condition. In the middle of standarte there is a completely hand-done, outrageously beautiful Iron Cross image with Wehrmacht-style closed-wing eagle in the center of the cross. The Iron Cross edges are trimmed in bullion fabric with a black line running through the length of the bullion trim. Framed around the center eagle, forming a wreath, are hand-done bullion oak leaves with acorns. In the middle of the cross is a white satin fabric. Hand-constructed with a darker brown color thread sewn to the white satin fabric is an eagle. The workmanship to the details of this bird is extraordinary with the stitcher's ability to create the feathered appearance throughout the eagle, literally almost giving the bird life. The bird's beak is further done in bullion thread, which was also used to construct the talons, which grasp a swastika done in a black thread. This handwoven workmanship is literally a work of art and must have taken many days to construct. At each corner area of the red presentation is a hand-done mobile swastika sewn with matching aluminum bullion thread having a black accent line in the center. The reverse of the standarte is done in the exact same process, except the figures are shown in reverse, so as to use the same identical areas on the reverse as the obverse. At the left edge of the standarte, there are a series of original small holes which reflect the areas that were punctured for attaching the Standard to the original wood display pole. The standarte was removed with great care, as there is no damage to these areas. If you have never seen one of these standartes close-up, the view of supreme quality and expertise demonstrated is worth an admission price.

Accompanying the standarte are the two original Streamers that decorated the artifact. The streamers were attached to the upper part of the carrying pole and dangled downward over the standarte. The streamers are a one piece unit being produced of aluminum bullion fabric having each edge of the brocade decorated with black and red color stripes. On both ends of the Streamers are silvered rectangular plaques pointed on the ends. Each plaque has an obverse and reverse which presents a raised Wehrmacht-style eagle clutching a mobile swastika on each side. On the obverse side of one Streamer end, there is the raised date, "16. MÄRZ 1935". On the other streamer end on the obverse side is the same Wehrmacht eagle, but having the date, " 16. MÄRZ 1936". These dates represent the time when Hitler openly declared his open Wehrmacht in 1935, flying in the face of the Versailles Treaty. The 1936 date represented the time when these regiments were presented their colors by Hitler personally. At the two ends of both streamers is a giant-size portepee-like stem and lower knot with "shaving brush" style bullion. A most impressive accouterment here!

Completing this offering is a rarely-seen original Army Honor Gorget. These Gorgets were only permitted to be worn by the Standarte Bearer himself. Because of this, few Gorgets were produced and they are very rare. The Gorget is crescent-shaped and is most likely made of a nickel base, with silver plating. There is a folded edge around the face plate. In the center is an applied silvered Wehrmacht eagle with clutched swastika, positioned over a standarte flag image on the left and a matching example on the right. Both standarte images show the standarte mounted with a pole as well as a pole top. Each standarte image also is produced with the same design wreath and Wehrmacht eagle that appears on the standarte, The silvering has pleasing age tones around the image. At each corner of the plate, there is a boss button having a three-leaf oak leaf sprig beneath. Attached to the Gorget is a neck chain featuring separate links which alternate oak leaf sprigs with a Wehrmacht eagle. The same images appear on the reverse chain links. There are a total of 21 chain links. Each end link is attached to a metal tab on the reverse of the Gorget. The reverse of the Gorget has three metal positioning tabs, the center example being stamped, "A" for the Assmann hardware firm. The reverse of the Gorget plate is covered with a field gray Army green felt. The felt remains totally perfect with no age nips or faults.

Accompanying the standarte grouping is a letter from the son of the "liberating" veteran, Robert Arther, attesting that his father brought the item home. Paul Arther served in Europe as an OSS Officer. His assignments included decoding intercepted messages. Arthur recalled in an accompanying newspaper article reiterating the capture of a Nazi who was caught while wearing an American uniform. The incident resulted in execution. Arthur was awarded The Battle of the Bulge Medal and other decorations. The grouping also includes a picture of the son, Robert Arther holding the testimony letter accompanying the grouping while the standarte, Streamers and Gorget are pictured on a table in front of him. There is also a copy of Paul Arther in the field with a jeep in uniform and also a picture of him in uniform with his wife. Another news photo shows 92 year old WWII veteran Paul Arther talking of his service with the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and describing his service time as, "romantic and exciting"!

A seldom-offered, important grouping being totally documented and in choice condition throughout.

FLAGS #50116C DAF Town Standarte with One Half of Original Carrying Pole & DAF Poletop

This rigging is quite rare to find, when not only do we have the standarte, but also, the top half of the original pole and the pole top to go with it. The standarte measures 44 inches by 76 inches and is complete with its seven aluminum hanging rings. Each ring is stamped, "RZM M3/27/37", indicating that the standarte was produced in 1937. The cotton standarte has very bright red color throughout and is in perfect condition except for a small hole being a couple of inches from the town identification patch. The town patch is brown wool material with a blue ribbon border. It is from the town of Rheydt-Süd / 11, which is the town in Rhineland where Josef Goebbels was born. The town details are woven in white thread. The standarte is double-sided and on each side is a large center-placed DAF insignia.The insignia with its white-trimmed cogs surrounds a black swastika with white field. Quite a fine standarte here.

Accompanying the standarte is the brass-trimmed lower portion of the original carrying pole. The lower pole is about 44 inches long, and at the bottom has a tapered brass mount with rounded tip. At the upper end, it is fitted with a brass mount made for the acceptance of the upper portion of the pole, which is gone to time. Accompanying the pole is a fine, all-brass DAF Pole Top. It features the cogwheel design around the circumference, and inside, is a mobile swastika with a lined decoration engraved on all of its legs. It is very rare to see these pieces. It is conceivable the next purchaser could have a reasonable copy made of the upper portion of the pole that is missing, as this would all make for an outstanding historical display piece for a Political collection.

FLAGS #49910C Harbor Patrol Banner

I suspect that his Harbor Patrol Banner is quite rare, being the first example I have seen.

It is in the style that is usually called a podium banner, but I can't imagine that a harbor was overflowing with podiums. Perhaps German harbor masters were given to extended bouts of oratory? Your guess is as good as mine.

FLAGS #48389 Large NSDAP Gateway Drapery

The flag is in very choice condition with no holes and it has a red canvas style hoist which is equipped with 5 separate hanging straps all in good condition. Further there is a maker label “Fahnenfabrik Wallichs”. The fields are separate on both sides with printed swastikas. A great flag here if you have the right place to suspend it and as I say it is a very unusual shape which you should be able to see on our pictures.

Near Mint. $595.00

This vehicle ID flag is in extremely choice condition. The colors remain clean and bright.

The field is applied, with a printed swastika. It measures 6 feet by 3 feet and is single sided. The usual grommets are present on the edges. One the grommets looks to have been placed too close to the edge and an extra, correctly placed grommet seems to have been installed next to it.

A really fine example here.

FLAGS #48385 Large Hitler Youth Pennant

This HJ pennant is quite nice and still has good bright colors. It does have a hole, which is a shame.

It has a sturdy canvas hoist which feels like the ropes are still inside, although they have been cut off at the ends.

A fairly scarce pennant here.

Good. $795.00

FLAGS #43820C Studentenbund Banner

This very rare and ornate banner is quite a looker. It measures 56 inches by 48 inches.

All of this work is done with quality separate construction. Running along the three edges is fine 2 inch bullion fringe.

FLAGS #47113 NSDAP Single Sided Banner

FLAGS #44938C Heim Ins Reich Pennant

The flag is of red canvas being double sided. It has a white canvas hoist and the rope is still within the hoist. Separately applied to both sides of the flag are the insignia consisting of a black bordered circle with white field and black swastika. Around the black portion of the circle is "Heim Ins Reich".

A nice item here if you are collecting party related things. This is the first example I can recall having to offer so I do not think these are common pennants.

Near Mint. $495.00

FLAGS #44705 High Ranking Naval Car Pennant with Staff

This car pennant apparently belonged to a naval admiral. It has a dark blue canvas base and the edges are lined with a gold type tress.

There is a little fray along the edges but not too bad.

In the center area is a woven gold naval eagle. The naval eagle is done quite intricately but it appears to some age has gotten to it and there are some portions of the eagle where the thread has gone to time.

FLAGS #44642C Hermann öring Personal Car Pennant as Prussian Minister of the Interior

This one-of-a-kind car pennant is an extremely rare artifact. The pennant is contained in its original leather frame with antenna rod. The frame is covered with celluloid plastic which amazingly, is still 100% intact. At the left side of the frame, the leather folds over and secures the pennant inside with three working snaps. As far as I know, the pennant has never been out of the leather covering. The pennant measures 11 inches X 6 inches. It appears to be an off-white, yellowish color cotton. The car pennant is double-sided and is embroidered with the Prussian Minister's eagle which we also know as the Feldjägerkorps Polizei eagle seen on Police Bayonets coming from this brief era in 3rd Reich history. The eagle is of black weave with open wings and looking to the viewer's right. The bird's beak and talons are yellow. The bird's eye is white, as are feather details and the mobile swastika emblazoned on his breast. The bird's talons contain two lightning bolts on the left and retain a sword in the right talon. Above the bird's head is a black ribbon which in white lettering appears the slogan, "Gott mit uns". The pennant shows a couple of minor stains, but overall, it is in fine condition.

In 1934, G√∂ring was appointed Prussian Minister of the Interior where he consolidated Nazi power by filling the Prussian administration with Party members. At the same time he founded the political police of Prussia using mostly SA members, which became known as the Feldjágerkorps. At the same time he was responsible for the institution of the Gestapo under Himmler and Heydrich. It was also during this administration that G√∂ring formed the first concentration camp for political prisoners..Hermann was at his prime then, having the full confidence of Hitler and used this office to go on as leader of the Luftwaffe, and in 1936, Hitler appointed him Plenipotentiary for the Implementation of the Four-Year plan, where G√∂ring became one of the richest men in the world. Next to Hitler, Hermann was the most important man in the 3rd Reich.

A very historic pennant here and a highlight for an advanced Göring collection.

The hoist is marked "General-Adm. 1,5 X 1,5". There is also an ink stamping of a swastika within a circle about the letter "M", also in a circle.

For those of you that are serious naval collectors you will definitely want to consider this flag.

Excellent. $2,495.00

FLAGS #43108C Single Sided Kreisleiter Vehicle Pennant

These vehicle pennants were usually double sided, but this one only has a single side. It measures about 10 by 10 inches.

It has a red border, with a brown field bisected by a pair of white diamond points. At the union of the field and diamonds is a fine bullion Party eagle, being an early example that looks to the left. This bird has a striking geometric design and clutches a wreathed swastika, with all of the details trimmed in striking black accents. To the left and right of the bird respectively are the initials "K" and "L", for Kreisleiter.

There is some moth damage spread on the white sections, but the brown portions, being cotton, were left undamaged by these creatures.

The pennant is mounted on a backing of black cardboard. On the reverse of the pennant is a Weimar flag in black, white and red. In the center is a printed wreath with a portrait of Hindenberg in the center. The entire grouping is contained in a plastic mounting to protect it from damage.

This identical pennant is shown on page 148 of the fabulous book "Uniforms of the NSDAP" by Jeff Clark.

FLAGS #38388 Unusual NSDAP Pennant

This NSDAP Pennant is quite unusual in that the reverse is different from the obverse. The pennant is constructed of a canvas-like material with a hoist on the left side. It measures 12 inches by 26 inches.

The red colors are still nice and bright and there is a separately applied white field (with a printed swastika) sewn to the center. This flag is in fine condition, with no holes or damage and showing little age.

The reverse is split into the colors of red and white. At the top there is an illegible name or word written in what appears to be Sütterlin script. It is embroidered in red against the white background. At the the bottom of the red field, embroidered in white, is the word "Nürnberg".

A very fine, unusual variant here, perfect for a collection of NSDAP flags.

FLAGS #38354 NSDAP Banner

This Party Banner is in perfect condition with no holes. It is long and narrow, measuring 31" by 78".

An outstanding banner here; it would make a great backdrop to a collection.

FLAGS #34949 Early NSDAP Decorative Table Banner

To me this piece appears to have been used for putting around a round table to decorate the furniture piece. Most likely, the party leaders would have sat at a table so decorated. This banner is about eight feet long, and about one foot wide, having a one inch gold fringe that goes along the bottom of the banner, as well as the two ending sides. The banner is all of red cotton, with a white border at the bottom, to which the gold fringe is sewn. Spaced throughout the entire length of the banner are six swastikas on round white fields, and five printed busts of Hitler appearing to be from about 1925 or 1926.

Hitler is shown as a younger man with his ridiculous comb-over hairstyle, ludicrous moustache, political shirt, cross strap, tie and party eagle with swastika. It is a great depiction here, and something not seen too often. The Hitler bust is all printed on a white background, and has a black border that runs around the oval portrait, having 51 mobile swastikas on round, white fields in the border. Since there are five of these oval Hitler busts between the round swastika fields, that is a lot of swastikas for your money here!

This is the first time I have seen a banner like this, and I feel that it is an extremely interesting artifact, and most historical. It is possible that it could also be one of a kind. A great chance here to enhance a fine, NSDAP collection.
