|Appraised By:||Jeffrey Motsinger|
|Appraiser Comments:||Old miltary flags are very collectible but they vary widely in price. Civil war era flags are extremely desirable among American collectors and I expect Naval flags have similar desirability to British collectors. The ensign flag was used from 1707 to 1801. This example is worth at least $500, but, in the right market on the right night, could go for as much as $2,000. Sorry to have to give such a wide range but data for flags this old is scarce--not many trade on the open market each year. Worth more in London than Nova Scotia so I recommend selling it on an international market over a local market.|
