Vintage paper 48 star flag on a 3" stick. These are unused old stock in nice shape. Some paper aging. On July 4, 1912, the U.S. flag grew to 48 stars. It was the official flag for 47 years all the way up till 1959. So these go back to at least the 1950s. The box they were in looks much older.
Large vintage 17" wide paper poster for Sun-Ray Cigars. Fancy name on sunburst background. Unused stock found in the warehouse. Circa 1930s. Nice condition.
Vintage large 16 1/2" wide super colorful "Redeem Your Nehi Beverage Carton Coupon Here" sign. These are paper window signs. They used to tape up in the front of a store to get you to come in and redeem your carton coupons, and maybe buy something else. Circa 1940s and in excellent unused condition. They came from the estate of the famous dealer and friend, Bob Secrist.
Vintage 2" wide paper flag on metal pin for the B.P.O.Elks. The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (also known as the Elks Lodge or simply The Elks) is to this day one of the largest fraternal orders in the United States with around a million current members. It was formed as a fraternal order and social club in 1868 and has a lot of rituals, traditions, and regalia that is very simllar to the Freemasons. It was a boys only club until recent years, and many lodges are still men only. They sponsored an insurance fund in the 1800s that was banned in 1907 when the money was mismanaged. Since then it has been a social club that has donated to many charities. These flags are very early and came out of a factory that made silks and flags many years ago. Based on the master boxes, I'd say they are from the early 1900s. As far as we can tell, these are the only examples known. They say "B.P.O.Elks" and have the society Elk logo on them. The flags are paper with some aging, and the pins have a little light rust, but are in amazing condition for their age. There was not a big bunch of these found and we have all of them.
Vintage very large 21" wide paper diner/soda fountain sign for German Chocolate Ice Cream. Nice detailed castle pictured along with a big dish of ice cream. We found these with the soda diecuts that were made in 1951. They are really nice. Excellent unused condition with very slight paper aging.
Vintage 2" wide paper flag on metal pin for the Foresters of America. These are paper flags with the same colorful illustration on both sides that say "Foresters of America" "Liberty Unity, Benevolence and Concord". Vintage 2" wide paper flag on 2 1/2" long metal pin for the Foresters of America. This was a benevolent fraternal organization that existed under this name from 1890 till 1969. It evolved from ancient European groups and also offered insurance to members. Over the years, the fraternal part of the organization was lost and it because what is now the Foresters Insurance Company! The flags are paper with some aging, and the pins have a little light rust, but these are in amazing condition for their age. These are very rare.
