Last month I went back to visit some HS friends in NJ. While I was there I ran into a family member of one of my friends who was killed in Viet Nam. This person asked if I was still into military collecting. When I said yes, they offered me their relatives coffin flag. I thought it was odd but went over to their house and picked it up . The flag was in the original plastic covering and inside the issue carboard box. I've seen many coffin flags but not undisturbed like this. I'm not sure what to do with it yet. I'll post photos later. I'll have to block out the handwritten name .

Here are the photos. First is the original issue box, with the name blocked out. Second is the protective plastic bag with the flag inside, unopened or unfolded since the late 60's.
