    Bell & Everett: A Deceptively Scarce and Important 1860 Name Flag. At the time Threads of History was published Collins was unable to picture a Bell-Everett name flag. However, in the 1980s a quilt backed with Bell and Lincoln name flags came to light. The present example measures 17.25" x 11.5", and is particularly desirable as it is a mate to previously known examples of the other three 1860 candidates. The majority of the Bell flags from the quilt were completely different, much smaller, and with the canton on the right side and the addition of the slogan "The Union and the Constitution." This is the first example of the larger format which Heritage has handled. Condition and colors are beautiful, and only a few trivial small ink marks which occurred in manufacture keep us from describing it as mint. Nicely custom-framed to 19.75" x 14".
