    BEAUTIFUL CONFEDERATE 10 STAR 1ST NATIONAL FLAG WITH CAPTURE HISTORY. All silk construction, 33" on the hoist, 60" on the fly, entirely hand stitched . 4 ½" stars of white cotton, double sided. The top two stripes are one piece, the bottom red stripe is constructed of two pieces. The flag has been archivally framed and includes a brass plaque detailing the flag's history. This wonderful Confederate flag was captured during the Peninsula Campaign, March - August 1862, by Howard K. White. After the war the flag was displayed in Mr. White's well known retail establishment in New York City until 1961 when it was acquired by renowned collector Wendell Lang from Mr. White's sons. The flag remained in Mr. Lang's possession until 1991 when ownership transferred to Dr. Freddie T. Barron. A superb Confederate 1st national, visually striking for its size, bright color and great character. Includes a wonderful history of lineage from its capture to the present day.

    Captured August 1862 by HK White, sold by his descendants in 1961; Lang and Barron Collections.

    The flag is very sound. A number of scattered small holes, the largest being ½" X 2" in the center of the white stripe. The white stripe and cotton stars have darkened a bit with age. Overall the flag is in very fine untouched condition.

    This flag has been carefully examined by authoritative in-house experts and has been deemed to be authentic and of the period in every respect including fabric, thread, dye and the method and pattern of construction. Additionally, any accompanying provenance has been verified as unique and indigenous to the specific flag it documents.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
