This is the latest addition to the Newlyn Collection. Ray bought this U.S. flag at a collectors fair recently and I have to say its a lovely find. The 48 Star Flag came into being in 1912, with the addition of New Mexico and Arizona to the Union. It was official for 47 years, longer than any other U.S. flag, and was used during both World Wars. Eight Presidents served under this flag, the last being Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Ray's collection is growing all the time yet somehow he still fits it inside one tiny room. Either he has a secret stash somewhere else or he's started tunneling!
