Stars and Stripes Forever

I was packing up the set of book from Friday's giveaway and this old girl fell out of volume six:

The flag is eight inches by ten inches, and the material feel modern, like a silk/poly blend. Then again, what do I know about fabrics.

Found in "The Library of Choice Literature," volume six, published by Gebbie and Co., 1882.

  1. Hmm, fifty stars. So at least from 1959.

  2. Yes, I also noticed the 50 stars, so it's certainly not as old as the books.
    Very nice, though. :)
