    DELIGHTFUL 1864 LINCOLN JOHNSON CAMPAIGN FLAG. the 19th century campaign flags are among the true "blue chips" of the political collecting hobby, and Lincoln is always a collecting favorite. 1864 Lincoln Johnson flags are considerably tougher than similar Lincoln Hamlin ones from 1860. This is a rather small variety, 8 ½" by 5 ¾", and is unlisted in " Threads of History". Rather unusual in that "Lincoln and Johnson" is in a vivid blue ink, rather than black. Condition is essentially near-mint, although the blue in the field is faded somewhat(as often seen). The basic flag would have been cut (apparently by hand ) from a repeating roll or sheet, which was of a generic nature and the political legend would have been added in a separate process( hence the lettering done in a different blue ink, remains bold). Just a bit more size would put this beauty in the $10,000+ price class. Total size is 18" by 15" as superbly custom framed. (# This item may require additional shipping charges).
