    I picked up this 13 star flag a little over a year ago at a garage sale. I know the flag is from the late 18th to early 19th century, I have a few offers on the flag from different collectors, however I feel like they were trying to take advantage of the fact that I knew nothing about the flag at the time. I have taken the flag to many antique stores and always get the same response "Oh, you have something special." I want to know more about the flag and ultimately the value. I myself am not a collector and am currently keeping the flag in a Ziploc bag, I hoping to not only learn a little about it but find it a proper home. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi. The flag is ca 1895-1920. There is often one of this kind on eBay. Median price is about $300-$350. It's entirely machine-sewn with zigzag-sewn stars.
