    Description

    IMPORTANT LARGE 1864 LINCOLN CLOTH CAMPAIGN FLAG. This choice 17 inch by 12 inch beauty makes a wonderful display item for Lincoln’s re-election candidacy. In name flags as with ribbons, ferrotypes and other categories, 1864 Lincoln- Johnson examples are much scarcer than the Lincoln Hamlin counterparts, especially in this crisp, vibrant condition. The slight irregularity in the line up of the lettering might suggest that this was a handmade one-of-a-kind item, but this is not the case as we know of another identical example in one of the hobbies’ leading private flag collections. Archivally correct custom mat and framing. From the Gelke Family Collection, about as good a provenance as one could have for an item of this nature. (# This item may require additional shipping charges).

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
