    Grant & Wilson: Probably Unique 1872 Name Flag on the Original Stick. While we have encountered upwards of ten different varieties of Grant & Colfax name flags, this is the first Grant & Wilson version we can recall seeing, and Collins lists none in Threads of History. As a general rule, 1872 Grant items are many times rarer than those of 1868. In all probability, the novelty of his candidacy had worn off the second time around, and all but certain prospects for his re-election obviated the need for campaign novelties. The present example is lightly soiled and has two unobtrusive 1/2" tears, but is in very good overall display condition. 7" x 5" on a 10" stick.
