I found this unusual Service Flag at a local auction. It is the first Gold Star flag I had seen personally. Nor had I seen one with the American flag and the "V"ictory symbol. For those unfamiliar, the gold star means that your family member had died while serving. It is a WWII 48 star flag with a patent date of 1942. It is silk or satin. All the color but the gold star is silkscreened. The star is embroidered. Beautiful color in the flag and "V". There is light staining in a couple of areas. There is a gold fringe missing from the bottom, loss in the red border and slight fraying along the border in spots. Some lines of loss in the "V". The flag shows little or none of that. Gold cord is still attached. I am being extra picky when describing this when really, for it's age, it looks very good. Size is 17.75 x 11.25. It is wrinkled some from storage.
