    Re: 9 Star American flag

    I have 2 old political flags from the mid-late 1800's, found within a box containing old pinbacks from the same era. One is the normal 46 star at about 3-1/2" by 2-1/4" or so...the other is this 9 star you are all informing me of, it is ink stamped on back with W D Blyth. They are both on the little sticks. These are not perfect, but are def in good condition........I hate having to sell the last of my major finds, but I have no choice but to sell...where would I sell these where others can enjoy them (as they should be enjoyed)?

    Also, can you suggest any sites that could give other info. Searches for both 9 star and Blyth turned up so very little.

    My appreciation.

    I guess I should also mention that my flag has 7 red stripes and 6 white stripes

    If you choose to sell your 9 star flag you can try E-Bay. I also buy flags if you like please e-mail me for details. I can also provide you with additional info

    Greetings, Ronalddalec ! :D

    Welcome to the USA-Flag-Site Forums !


    BEFORE you sell your Flags, you might want to find out a little more about them so you'll have a little bit better idea as to their value.

    I have three suggestions that will help you out here on the USA-Flag-Site Forums.

    #1 Gather ALL the information you can about your Flags: Measurements, fabrics, background info, identifying marks, etc.

    #2 Take some pictures of your Flags, making sure that you include some CLOSE-UPS that will show the fabric, colors, condition, construction details, etc.

    #3 Start a NEW thread in the "Flag Identification & Collecting" Forum HERE :
    http://www.usa-flag-site.org/forum/flag-identification-and-collecting/


    As it is, right now you are at the end of someone else's thread in the wrong forum. It would be a LOT better if your Flags could get the attention they deserve, all by themselves in their own thread, in the "right" forum. Know what I mean ???

    Good Luck and Thank You for bringing your Flag-related question to our Forums !


    I look forward to reading and seeing more about your two vintage Flags !!!

    Hi, Peter ! :D


    By any chance did you notify "Ronalddalec" (e-mail, personal message, telephone, smoke signals, etc.) about this "NEW" thread? Do you know if he knows about it? :confused: :confused: :confused:


    Thanx,

    Robin
