What do you guys think about this WWI US Artillery Guidon? It is for the 306 Field Artillery, Battery E, 77th Division. It is one sided and thin. Does anyone have any idea of value?
Thanks,
Chief

Nice flag!
what are the dimensions?
WW1 ones were a bit larger than the WW2 ones.
is there a tag in the sleeve?

any history with it?

I will measure it and post the results.
I got it from an old collection along with the painted, original helmet.
No other history, sorry.

It is very thin. It measures 41" long at it's longest, and 27 1/4" high.
I don't see any tags.
No history on it except the description on the bag and the helmet.
Got it from an old collection. The collector had passed on.
Any idea of rarety and value?
Thanks,
Chief
