    Dramatic 1884 Blaine-Logan Jugate Silk Campaign Flag
    One of the nicest early jugate flag designs. This important example is ex-collection of Boleslaw and Marie-Louise Mastai, who built one of the finest private collections of historic American flags. It is discreetly marked "Mastai Collection" in the lower LH corner, and is clearly identifiable as the example published in their major 1973 reference book, The Stars And Stripes (p. 208). While it does have some minor imperfections, it is all-in-all superior to the Smithsonian's example, pictured on page 238 of Threads of History. Two trivial small holes at the lower right do not impinge on the lettering, and could easily be restored if one wished. There is some minor, light water staining on the right side. Undoubtedly this occurred when the flag was stored rolled, leaving this end exposed. However, the silk fabric itself, so vulnerable to deterioration, is remarkably fresh and "minty," and the reds and blues are as bold and striking as the day it was made. Overall a very fine example for a flag of this era. 23" x 15". Nicely custom-framed.

    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.
