I inherited a 48-Star Flag from the late father. I do not know where he acquired it, but I know he used it for his scout troop during the 1970's and 1980's. It is in not so great condition with many stains on it. It has a label which reads "Glory Gloss,Dettra Flag Products, Made in the USA 53. It has gold fringe around the entire flag and measures 2' x 3'. It also has red/white/blue-striped ribbon which enabled it to be tied to a flag pole. Since it was stained, I was giving it to a co-worker (a member of a scout troop) to be deposed of properly, but another co-worker says it may have some value. He also states it is made out of silk and the stars are lined up in six rows of eight. Any assistance in both value, history, and how to clean it would be greatly appreciated. I do not have the means to post a picture, but will do my best if one is needed upon request. Thank you!!
