Collecting Early American Flags

Have you ever been to an auction or estate sale and seen an early American flag?  If you are as patriotic as we are, we wish to buy the flag to display in or around our home.  However, we do not know much about early American flags . . . that is until now.  Jeff Bridgman wrote an article for Country Home Magazine that gives ten tips for selecting an Early American flag.  Here is an excerpt from that article which can be found on his website.

1.    Start small and be cautious.  Ask a lot of questions.

2.    Read as much as possible and look at as many examples as possible.

3.    Know the difference between sewn flags and parade flags.

4.   If buying a sewn flag, buy a large one, it will save you money.

5.    Know the construction method.  By the turn of the century hand sewn flags had all but disappeared.

6.    Donít get hung up on the condition of the flag since most were used outdoors.

7.    Treat the flag as objects of art as well as history.

8.    Limit your collection to a particular interest.

9.    Conserve your flag properly.

10.  Never discard or burn early American flags.
