Thanks, the flag came out of a northern Kentucky grade school that was torn down (and left behind!) recently. It has great patina and the cast iron base looks just right. It has 50 stars - so newer than 1959.

Ha, "so clean"! Well it is getting there, but this is a working garage and used for max storage as well, so it does look busy. I have a bunch of furniture that needs to be disposed of which is taking up one whole bay of my 2.5 car shop. My detached shop was built in '03 by previous owner. We moved in in '14 and I inherited a blank slate (interior-wise) in a solid brick construction build (see photo) and it fortunately had a 100 amp service. Slowly but surely I have refurbished it to add insulation, dry wall, wainscoting, overhead oscillating fans, heating (propane), a/c (window unit), professionally epoxied floor, shelving, additional 110/220V lines throughout, compressor with air lines throughout the shop, and a lift (requiring re engineered trusses to provide additional height).




By the way, the antique Western Electric phone on the wall is fully operational and connects to another W. E. phone set in the house which we use as an intercom.
