    Probably the Largest Civil War Period U.S. Flag We've Ever Seen. 11½' on the hoist and 17½' on the fly, 35 stars (West Virginia June 20, 1863). All hand stitched and constructed entirely of very fine quality wool bunting. The five pointed 8" stars are inset in the blue field and are visible from both sides, stripes each 11" wide. The heavy coarse weave 1 1/8" canvas hoist has a 3/8" rope stitched inside with the suspension loops also covered with canvas. Neatly script embroidered on the hoist near one end is "C. S. Stryker" in gray thread. Obviously period but significance unknown. The flag is overall in superb condition, near perfect with just a few tiny holes and a few small areas of minor discoloration. The ultimate backdrop for an important Civil War collection.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
