Just would like some opinions on what this banner could have been used for. Outside/inside, govt. building or something? 8.5 feet long x 3.30 feet wide. One hole on the right. Is it worth $180? Should I be storing it in a box or something?

No, just fabric all the way around.

Now I see, just looked at it again, and there is doubled-up fabric sewed at one end of the 3.30 ft. width. Large enough for a metal bar I suppose.

This was the "Party flag" that became the "National Flag of Germany" so could have been flown by anyone anywhere, and came in all kinds of shapes & sizes. Decent flag, worth $150-250. Rolling a flag is better than folding. If it's wool, a few mothballs won't hurt. Just keep away from pets & kids.
