My grandfather, who died in 1918, purchased this flag at an estate auction. I have no idea of the exact year. It was described as a battleship flag. However, after speaking by phone, with some experts, I was told it could have been a storm flag or a Garrison flag. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Sincerely, Margarit Shirley...PS. I was also told that the holes in the flag were a plus, not a minus, because the nature of the item.
