Good everning. Very new & looking for information. Today I acquired a 48-star flag at an antique store for $40. The store owner stated that this particular booth renter brought in quality & authentic merchandise. Question(s): 1. The flag is a valley forge flag, but it want to know how to inspect for history purposes. 2. The flag is 5x9.5. Is this the only size flag for fallen soldiers? 3. Is there a way I might be able to identify WHEN the flag was given, if for that purpose? Thanks for any input you may be able to contribute. I'm working on a project and wish to display this flag along with awards my deceased father of WWII era received, which I also have.
