Description
OUTSTANDING LINCOLN & HAMLIN 1860 CAMPAIGN PARADE FLAG.

15.5x19.5" frame w/8.25x12.25" glazed cotton flag. Unlisted in Threads Of History. Boldly inscribed "For President, Abraham Lincoln. For Vice President, Hannibal Hamlin." The 33 stars filling the canton are arranged in a somewhat random pattern w/scattered smaller stars anchored by larger ones at center and in each corner. We have never encountered another campaign flag design utilizing this charming starburst arrangement and suspect it is unique to this issue. Tiny losses along left edge of hoist end where flag was originally attached to wooden stick. A .5" hole affecting the second stripe in field at top right that is well masked detracting minimally. Otherwise scattered tiny pin holes and moderate even age toning. Fine. Remarkable condition given its 160 years of survival. Professionally displayed in a period frame, the flag has been stitched to acid free cotton behind UV blocking plexiglass. Pre-civil war campaign flags are prized w/those featuring Lincoln among the most highly sought. This present example is extremely rare, the only other known specimen of this design was sold by Hake's in 2017 for $40,124. An exceptional opportunity to obtain an important and rare piece of American political history.
