    Ulysses S. Grant: Magnificent Silk 1868 Campaign Flag Banner. To our taste, one of the nicest of single-portrait flag designs, and in spectacular near mint condition with amazingly vivid blue and red colors. Listed by Collins in Threads of History (page 177), and this does not appear to be the plate example. However, we know of no other existing copies. An unlisted Seymour mate does exist; we sold an example privately some eight years ago for nearly $20,000 despite extensive restoration of damage to Seymour's portrait. One of the prize offerings in this exceptional auction. 18" x 11.5", nicely custom framed to 22" x 15.5". This lot requires 3rd party shipping.
