It's a shame that these fake flags keep popping up on sites such as Ebay. Certain details of these sales should set off an instant alarm to you buyers. Nobody is going to sell an actual period flag that could fetch tens of thousands (even hundreds of thousands) of dollars or more for the foolishly low figures that you buyers always come up with. If you want to play "collector" and actually aquire something of value and hopefully have it displayed in some form for the interested public and rookie historians to admire and learn from, PLEASE use this message board and e-mail our varied experts. Gregg Biggs can tell you in an instant if your flag is genuine or not. His research and aquired knowledge and his fraternal "hooks" with gentlemen like Howard Madaus and Ken LeGrande are our (your) link to authenticity. Don't ambarrass yourself, waste your money, and in turn encourage these sellers of fake historical artifacts to prosper. And don't think for a minute that these gentlemen would sneak in and snake your deal on an artifact. This is why Jim Martin hosts these boards. So people can share info and experiences and get reliable information. Trust your pards.
