This came from a local estate today, with some other great material, and I must admit I have never seen one before. It has its slip cover in black waterproofed (at least it was in 1945) cloth. I know its Police, is there any other significance to the edging, colors, etc? I find no reference on it. Marked with DRGM on the aluminum spine. Material is almost like celluloid or very primitive plastic over a thin (probably also aluminum) base. Its been in its case since WWII, the man was a signal corps tech from near my home here. I know this is not a value forum, I am curious about that too, and demand vs. regular military versions...comments, anything? Thanks, gents!

Never seen one like that, but a wonderful item in my opinion.

Most likely an Ordnungspolizei officer's staff car pennant.

The construction is very similar to the Allgemeine-SS equivalent.

Many SS and Police officers had dual ranks in both organisations.

Nice how the eagle's head has been rotated to 'face the front' .................. makes for a very unusual image of the normal Polizei eagle.

As regards value, I think it must be worth at least £400 GBP.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
