I recollect that when I started college in 1959 we were in a transition period for flags because of the recent additions of Hawaii and Alaska states. And even in the early 60s to mid-60s, I recall that we still had a 48-star flag on the wall at our hockey rink at Cornell. I also recall that there were quite a few retrofit flags around in that period wherein manufacturers had rather crudely sewn two additional stars onto the bottom row of a 48-star flag. Was there any governmental authority or sanction for such flags? I am surprised that I was unable to find any discussion of this subject on this forum, nor any pictures of this 'uglified' flag. BTW, I do not recall ever seeing a flag with only one retrofit star, because the period between the admission of the 49th and 50th state was rather brief.
