    Henry Clay: Spectacular Large 50" 1844 Campaign Flag Banner. One of the largest varieties of political flags ever produced at 50" x 30.5", it features a terrific bold Clay portrait in the 15.5" x 14.5" canton. Very strong reds and blues, and in excellent overall condition. The white areas show typical even toning and there is some minor light water staining, and there are three trivial tiny holes at the top from long-ago suspension. But these are really noted just for accuracy. As the photograph shows, this flag has great display presence. It is a variety especially prized by collectors because a Polk mate was also produced, offering the tantalizing possibility of owning a mated pair. It is interesting to note that the condition is clearly superior to the plate example on page 117 in Threads of History.
