Updates: well, you probably read about my size 10 ensign. (g-spec, nylon, valley forge, ring and hook header). If not, look in the long G-spec thread towards the end. Like page 6. Since then I also picked up a 48 star, appliquÃ© stars, valley forge, 3'6"x6'8" g-spec flag for around $18. It is cotton and presents some signs of staining if you get close to the flag. So not mint, but no signs of wear either. Well just call those age stains. Then I spent quite a bit more, and snagged my first 49 star flag. I'm excited. Again Valley Forge, cotton 3x5. Photos look great. Condition is described as "gently used, flown on major flag holidays only" That one is still in transit.
