Description
United States of America - USA 48 star flag - made from SILK!! as used between 1912-1958
Original - Good condition

A nice 100% original 48 star flag (i.e., >A4 like size). This is a nice version that looks to be made out of silk, as used between 1912-1958 This is the second ever silk 48 star that I have to offer for auction!

Such flags were often taken by the soldiers to the battlefield as a keepsake/reminder from home! (see attached photo's as examples from museum collections, including the world famous Smithsonian, that has a similar silk flag). The flag is slightly used and has a beautiful patina, clearly original flag!

Great and rare 100% original item for your US collection!
