    I would be cautious... that one looks amazingly mint... like it was made yesterday. I'm not saying the flag has to look ratty, but I'm automatically suspicious when I see something that old in that good of condition.

    Thank you for the comments. I have requested some extra photos and asked about size, material markings.

    The seller says "it is made from a durable linen and not marked, as close to perfect as any I have ever seen"
    The size is about 4X6 feet.

    I agree with Joe.

    "Extremely mint" items always make me suspicious.
    Investigate and be careful first.

    Don't these flags normally have leather corner tabs?

    I don't feel good about this one. They've made-and still are today-Thousands upon thousands of these flags for decades now. Like the others have said, no leather corner tabs is not a good sign either.

    Thank you for all the feedback. Glad I put this up to be discussed. With all the advice and the sellers failure to provide extra pictures I will avoid this flag. Thank you, nic.
