i bought a large 5x9 48 star flag (for $50) that is now on display in my WWII hobby room. i know nothing about flag collecting, but wanted a 48 star flag for this room because it fits the WWII era theme. my hopes are that it is dated WWII era or before, but i cant seem to nail it down. i have a label stitched on it that says " STERLING REG. U.S. PAT OFF FAST COLOR DOUBLE WARP ALL WOOL BUNTING" . the flag seems to be all wool (as it feels like burlap) i have discovered through this site that "sterling" is a wool brand from annin co. and that its possible that most wool flags are from roughly 20's to mid 40'........correct? It also seems that im in the ball park as far as $ value as well....true?i will post pictures shortly, but in the meantime can anyone tell me roughly what era or years this flag may have been produced, and what uses it may have had? (also should mention it had 2 brass rings for hanging , but only one is left....probably wasn't an internment flag ,unless it was and someone decided to fly it ) Any help here would be appreciated, give me a full history lesson!
