    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Large 1864 Parade Flag. 25" x 16" glazed cotton flag with 35 stars in the canton. Inscribed: "For President, Abraham Lincoln. For Vice President Andrew Johnson. The Union and the Constitution." The names of Lincoln and Johnson are printed on linen panels which have been stitched in place, covering up a previous inscription which was excised from the flag. It is believed that the original names were Bell & Everett (Constitutional Union Party candidates in 1860). According to conventional wisdom, 35 stars would date the flag between 1863 and 1864; however we have sold two identical examples of this flag (each with 35 stars) in prior auctions for $29,000 and $40,000. We also sold a "non-recycled", standard Lincoln & Hamlin flag in our last sale that had 35 stars. Either the manufacturers were not too particular about the number of stars in the design, or they were anticipating the admission of Kansas & Nebraska as the 34th and 35th states. Three of the edges have been folded over (finished off). There is moderate overall aging and a few damp stains. The overall condition is quite decent. Lincoln campaign flags from 1864 are rarer than those from 1860. It is a wonderful display piece from the years of the Civil War.

    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.
