    United States 34 Star Flag: Impressive and Graphic Civil War-Era Flag. 39" x 24.5" finely-woven cotton flag with unusual right-to-left orientation. The canton has a rarely-seen arrangement of thirty-four stars arranged in a five-pointed star pattern. It was likely manufactured between the admission of Kansas on January 29, 1861 and West Virginia on June 20, 1863. The hem along the left side is hand-sewn and the flag is still attached to its cedar-wood staff, lacking its bottom portion and broken in two places. The owner's name, B. M. Rockwood, is inscribed in pencil on the white wrap-around portion. Some light soiling and damp stains with one very small internal tear, but generally in outstanding condition. The colors are not faded and the blue, heavily applied, is especially strong.
