Here is a very nice circa WWII British Red Ensign Flag in sterling. From what I have learned, this flag was flown by the British at their surrender at Yorktown in 1781. It was also at one earlier period of the Revolutionary War for a very short time, used by the colonists as their flag. This flag goes back as far as 1702, and probably earlier, when it was used by the British in a royal manor. Whether it was by a British merchant ship, or the Royal Navy. This flag is still being used today, by all large British ships other than fishing vessels. This pin we believe dates to about WWII from its pin and barrel catch construction, and was made in the USA. It is in excellent condition with the exception of one small horizontal scratch in the red enamel area, as you can see in our first photo. This can only be seen while holding the pin on a certain angle, otherwise it is not noticeable. All of the tiny white spots, and the one white looking vertical scratch in the red enamel area, is nothing but dust. It measures just about 1-1/16" across, by 1" in height at its highest point. Our photos should tell you just about all of the rest. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email us. You will be answered in a timely manner.
