American flag circa 1950 vintage 48 star American flag.

Trivia:

The 48-star flag was in effect for 47 years until the 49-star version became official on July 4, 1959. The 50-star flag was ordered by the then president Eisenhower on August 21, 1959, and was adopted in July 1960

I found this beautiful piece of American history at the Rhode Island Armory Antiques Marketplace in Newport.  They have sadly closed their doors this past fall but I found numerous unique and amazing items including this flag which it is believed was created for the first Boy Scout Jamboree held in Newport after World War II in 1953.

Enjoy.
