"World Flags"

One of my favorite items I've owned since I was a kid and actually since my DAD owned since he was a kid, is this "World Flags" book from 1942. What is significant about it is the German flag is the Nazi flag with the swastika and the Japan flag has the sunrays. Also, the US flag has only 48 stars. More amazing is how some flags have remained unchanged since 1942, but many more have changed. A very interesting book and it's only valued at about $8-12 on Ebay, but very historically interesting.
