I am looking for more information on a flag I recently purchased. It is SRB BI100 flag. It is on a certificate with an inscription that says:
This Flag Flew Inside the 100th Right Hand Solid Rocket Booster, Forward Skirt, During the Launch of the Space Shuttle Discovery. STS-96 May 27, 1999.
Signed by Rick Husband, Ellen Ochoa, and Dan Barry. Also signed by Donald Reed from Pratt and Whitney. The astronaut signatures are signed while Mr. Reeds is printed.

If memory serves me correctly I have seen one other example show up about 6 to 7 years ago in an auction but that is the only other one I have seen.

Any information will be appreciated.

All times are CT (US)
