    I cut n pasted this from wikipedia
    A patent is a set of exclusive rights granted by a state to an inventor or his assignee for a fixed period of time in exchange for a disclosure of an invention.
    For more information click here Patent - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    You can search on patents via Google too

    Valley Forge Flag Co. began in 1882 and is still making flags in Pennsylvania: their web site is www . valleyforgeflag . com [you have to key this in yourself, omitting the spaces I have added, otherwise this forums software does crazy things when you try to add a URL to a message.] The heading US Ensign means it was made as a Naval flag, size number 9. See the USNavy site on flag sizes: Flag Sizes

    Without further info, we can only say the flag was made between 1912 and 1959. Its value is limited because there were millions of 48 star flags made, and many of those remaining are on eBay on any given day.

    Regards,
    Nick
