    A most unusual 48 star flag. It is actually three pieces. The field of stars is 6 rows by 8 columns. The red and white stripes to the right of the field are actually sewn through the 9th column. you can see part of them. Then that whole section is sewn to the red and white stripes on the bottom.

    Has anyone else seen one like this?

      Disregarding the "oops" facter for a moment, have you seen three part flags ? I don't think I have...

      Let me answer my own question...apparently that was the norm, "back in the day" ! Live and learn...

      I found a 48 star flag in Kentucky at Peddler's Mall, a resale outlet. I'm almost sure it covered a veteren's casket from World War II. The best I can remember it was all hand sewn. I didn't care what the price...I didn't like seeing it thrown around the shelves like a old rag, so I bought it .
