Hello! I just purchased a 48 star flag at an auction. It was reported to have flown at Camp Lejeune and was from the estate of a Marine Corps Veteran. It seems to be a linen type material, the red and white stripes are sewn individually, but the blue and white stars are a seperate print . Appears to be sewn with a machine . The stars are flat, not embroidered. Stars are linear arrangement All stars are canted to 1:00 position There is enough space between each star to fit another star of the same size ( this seems uncommon to me ) 2 brass grommets. Approx 6 ' x 3.5' The condition is a bit worn brittle ,but I just love it! Stamped 16 A , all that I could find. Does anyone know how I can determine the approimate age? Thanks in advance!
