    Hi,

    I picked up this flag yesterday at an estate sale. With it were Army Discharge papers from 1919 and a bible dated 1914. I am presuming that this flag is around the same time period? I would appreciate some advice on a couple of things though and I apologize if they are silly questions.

    1. The flag has eye hooks instead of grommets. Would this be a post or installation flag?

    2. On the end of the read stripes there are padded patches with slits - would there have been weights in these?

    3. Flag measures 5' x 9'.

    4. Flag is unmarked but I presume around the time 1915-1920?

    Going to try to post some images...wish me luck!

    Hi usaretired,
    It is very possible that your flag could be of that era. The way the rings that are attached to header are typical of the Philadelphia Quartermasters Depot. I believe you are correct about the padded patches. This would allow the flag hang from a pole that is mounted from a building without wrapping itself around it. Would you have larger photos? Could you send them to emmalpass(at)yahoo(dot)com? I would really like to study the details.
    Thanks!
    Mike

    Dear usaretired,
    Judging the condition of this flag I would say the 1935 date would be acurate.
