I've come across an interesting 15 star flag on eBay, it's stars are arranged in an oval with 3 stars in the middle. The seller claims that the flag dates to the civil war through the centennial of kentucky. I had a few questions that I was hoping someone on the board could answer. 1) I was hoping that based on the construction of the flag that someone could opine on when the possible dates of construction could be? 2) Aside from the centennial of Kentucky, where there other reasons that 15 star flags were made from the civil period to the late 19th century? 3) The star pattern is quite unusual, I was wondering how common is this type of pattern and whether it is collectible?
