    Description

    Gerald Ford: White House Flag. 5' x 9.5' nylon flag that flew over the White House during Gerald Ford's Presidency. It is currently neatly folded into a triangle and placed in a cardboard box that is inscribed: "taken down Jan. 20th 1977 at 12:00". It was at that exact moment that Ford became a former President and Jimmy Carter was sworn in. The flag is stamped on the hoist "G.S.A. 5 x 9 1/2 Ft. Property of U. S. Gov't." with the label of the Valley Forge Flag Company of Spring City, Pennsylvania. The lid of the box has one side that has become detached, but is still present. Proceeds of this auction will be used for the new Student Learning Center being developed by the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation. This lot will be accompanied by a letter of authenticity signed by Steve Ford.
