Early little USSR flag

Recommended Posts

Picked up this little flag from a show. Made of silk, with 2 little ties. Printed construction. It was found with a North Korean one similar to this one, but of course with the DPRK flag, but for some reason minus the circle and star. So the question makes me wonder, could this be some sort of North Korean made piece? It's small enough to hang on a bayonet similar to Japanese flags. 

Piece is overall good shape. 1 part where the silk has loosened down the middle, and only a couple little holes. Ties are completely shot though, so no way to hang it with those. Hammer and sickle are white, but slightly yellowed which is expected I guess being silk.

That is crude looking.  Is there a way to verify the era?

That's my main question, as if anybody can confirm it is from Korea or around that era. It's certainly old, but I can't confirm age. I figure it is North Korean because of the other that was just like it for the DPRK, but of course that's all assumption

It is indeed DPRK made from the Korean War. Pretty nice find at the local show in a random pile of flags I'd say. Gonna pick up another soon as well. I'll post it in the appropriate section of course.
