Well, I acquired yet another flag. This one is a 49 star US flag. What I first noticed when I took it out of its box and plastic wrap, is that the stars are embroidered. I thought sewn on or appliquÃ© stars were still the rule in 1959. Flag header says it is Jupiter brand, box says American Flag and Banner in New Jersey. Flag itself is cotton header is a big thinner than most, and the fly end is only double not quad stitched. Im wondering if this sounds consistent with a 1959 vintage flag, or might it be a more modern production.
