    Possibly Unique 1876 Tilden-Hendricks Flag Banner
    While its Hayes-Wheeler mate is unlisted by Collins, we have seen perhaps a half dozen over the years. However, this also-unlisted Tilden version is the first we have ever encountered, and believed by knowledgeable sources to be the only known example. This is particularly significant as there are few textiles of any type for Tilden. Collins lists only a jugate flag, a bandanna, and a one-of-a-kind local banner! This bold red/white/blue display piece is a substantial 25" x 17 1/2", and is still on its original 41" stick (lower portion not seen in catalog photo). Overall condition is Excellent. There are several very trivial small holes in the border. Typically, there is moderate soiling on the right side (the flag would have been stored rolled, with this end most exposed to the elements). An important opportunity for the serious collector of political textiles.

    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.
