1860 Stephen Douglas For President Portrait Campaign Flag Museum Quality Rarity
1860 Stephen Douglas For President Portrait Campaign Flag Museum Quality Rarity:
1860 Stephen Douglas For President Portrait Campaign Flag Museum Quality Rarity. Condition is "New". Shipped via Registered Mail. Extremely High Grade 1860 Stephen Douglas Portrait Flag. Beautifully framed. 8 x 13 inches glazed cotton. Extremely rare museum-quality piece. In fact, of the very few examples known, one resides in the collection of the Smithsonian Institute. “Threads of History” by Herb Collins lists only three Douglas portrait Flags. Text in striped field reads "For President, Stephen A. Douglas, Vice President, Herschel V. Johnson." This is a particularly choice example, virtually perfect and in our opinion easily superior to the few other examples seen at sale over the years (which have still brought $17,000+ at sale, the last appearing in 2019). In all respects, this is an absolute top notch 1860 portrait campaign Flag. Dimensions: approximately 13 x 8 1/4 inches. Framed to dimensions of 18 1/2 x 13 1/2 inches. Guaranteed 100% authentic for life. Member APIC. (If you are reading this and not a member of the APIC, please do yourself a favor: JOIN. This is THE organization for Political Collectors.
