    I think these are referred to as battle flags. Although this one, attesting to the small size, was most likely used in parades, homefront, etc. It is in nice condition, I'd say $200 USD.

    The centering of the sun emblem makes it an Army flag, as opposed to the off-centered sun's being Navy. This is a nice small size and is quite desireable, as they make for great displays. Corey's estimate of value is about on target, as it's in very nice condition.
