    hi all,

    New to the forum. Recently purchased a 48 star paramount flag - San Fran..also marked "navy" the stars are all hand stitched...wondering if anyone can tell me how old it might be?
     
  2. What is the size and condition of the flag?

    Its in fairly good condition - looks like its been stored well for a long time...It does have a few rips that were stitched up by hand. The material feels very old, thin...almost wool like. Size 3x5

    Thanks for the help, this actually helps a lot - I always assumed that "Navy" meant it was a Navy issued flag...apparently that means its 100% wool.
