Hi all...this is my first post to the forum and I hope to be an active member. It is nice to find a place where people have similar interests and can share information.

These two flag poles were found in the basement of a NYC school and given to my father a few years ago.  They are in amazing shape but it has been very hard to nail down a value since nobody has ever seen another one for comparison.  One plaque is presented from Massachusetts and one from Delaware.

Hi Desert Rat,

Thanks so much for the reply.  I'm very happy to share these with everyone.  Maybe there will be someone with a little more knowledge on these items than I have.

Hello ,

These batons should be in a Museum as very special and rare, but they may buy them from you?

Best to you.......Desert Rat/ Ian

My advice would be to take these to one of the largest Military Museums you have, Let them find out all the history on them, you may find that these are a lot more rare than you think, it could be that these are part of items that have been missing for years and no one new where they were, but do not sell them yet, you could , if you wanted to, loan them out to  one of the National museum for display, that way they will be looked after and your name will be listed. Let us know how you get on
