A great piece of domestic World War I history, this original, wool felt banner is for the U.S. Army on Mexican Border, 2nd Montana Infantry. Shield and letters are stitched to the red felt. Blue and white strips are slipped through slots cut in the red felt. The white outer strip cleverly holds the red front and blue back together without stitching.
This banner is from the estate of one Clyde W. Kramer, who was born on or about Jan. 2, 1889, in Montana, and who was indeed in WWI, and later lived in Walker, Missouri.
Banner measures about 29 ½ by 29 ½ inches. Red and blue colors are sharp and vibrant; white is just a tiny bit dirty. Being made of wool and the age of this piece, there are holes from moths mostly on the blue back side as seen in pics (back side pics show the most extensive moth damaged spots). Holes on the front are mostly in the fringe area.
