This flag was included in a small WWI grouping that I recently purchased. Any information on its age would be appreciated. The only markings I can find are "3 x 5" and what appears to be "Lawrence" written above the lower grommet.

 

Thanks in advance for your assistance and feedback.

Hard to date any closer, it certainly could be WWI era, are the grommets bronze?

Hi Mr. Jerry,

 

Thanks for the reply. I would guess bronze because of the dark color. What is the easiest way to tell the difference between brass and bronze? I always think of brass as having a more yellow patina.

I usually think of bronze as being the darker color, just wasn't sure that it was what I was seeing. I would think with bronze grommets it is an older flag.
