The New York coat of arms, which appears on the flag, was originally adopted by the legislature in 1778.  The original New York flag is currently housed at the Albany Institute of History & Art. The coat of arms on the current flag is the original. In 1858, the field was changed to white during the War of Revolution. In 1898, it was changed to buff to match the colors of the soldiers uniforms. The last change was made in 1901, when the field of the flag was changed from buff back to blue. The coat itself has remained unchanged throughout history.

Your New York State flag will always be a symbol of pride. The deep symbolism is a testament to the great history of New York and the sacrifices that were made before, during, and after the Revolution. The beauty of the mountains overlooking the river will always be a reminder of the natural beauty that the great state of New York offers.

What types of plants grow in the Everglades?

The Everglades is home to more than 750 kinds of seed-bearing plants including bromeliads, cacti, succulents, grasses and lichens, as well as different types of marine plants. Among the 164 plant species are 39 species of orchid.

The Everglades lies at the geographical point where the tropical weather system of the Caribbean and the temperate system of North America overlap. As a result, the park is home to plant species that thrive in either climate.

The warm, wet weather in south Florida is perfectly suited for a lush assortment of plant life. Nine distinct ecosystems have been identified in the Everglades. These overlapping systems provide plant species that flourish in many different systems. The amount and duration of flooding, including the type and quality of floodwater, controls the distribution of the vegetation. The flat land, proximity to the ocean, elevation and soil type all combine to create a system perfectly suited for the abundant plant life.

Much of the vegetation that thrives in the Everglades is not native. Throughout history, wetlands have been drained, plants have been removed, and non-native plants have been introduced. The Everglades National Park was created in 1947, and since then the conservation efforts have been largely successful. However, by that time, many of the newly introduced species had taken hold, and the ecosystem had been irreversibly transformed.

Concealed permit holders may carry weapons in other states as long as those states have reciprocity agreements with Michigan.

How do you determine the value of old vinyl records?

The auction website Ebay is an excellent source for determining the current market prices that are being paid for vinyl records.

Old records can vary greatly in price. There are many factors that can determine the value, including the artist/album name, the pressing (first/second), pressing plant location, mastering engineer, condition, serial number, type of vinyl (black/colored), etc. Even different copies of the same record can vary greatly.

When determining the value of used records, it is important to know as much information as possible. As of 2015, vinyl copies of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon can sell for anywhere from $2, up to $3,100 on http://www.musicpriceguide.com, another bidding site similar to Ebay. Prospective buyers will often be well versed in music history and will know exactly what features of a record will add or take away from its value. It is important to know all of this information before attempting to sell or appraise the item. A good online source for understanding how to grade used vinyl is http://www.vinylrecordfair.com/vinyl-record-values. It will explain things like serial numbers, pressings, and condition grades.

Because of the recent resurgence in the popularity of vinyl and turntables, many musicians and record labels are now offering vinyl versions of their new albums. However, for many music lovers and audiophiles, the highest quality music can only be found on older versions of records that were pressed in specific plants in specific countries by specific engineers. There are so many details to be aware of when trying to determine the quality and value of vinyl, and the prospective buyers will hope you don’t understand them all.
