Good overall condition with moderate scattered discoloration. A few small tears and losses with old hand-sewn repairs in red stripes under canton. Not examined out of frame.
23" x 46" object, 29" x 53" OA.
Provenance: The Important Americana Collection of Barbara M. and the late Charlie Hunter, Staunton, VA. Cowan's Auctions, 12/2/2004, lot 769.
Catalogue Note: The present highly unusual campaign flag banner is a rare survivor from the 1864 Presidential campaign, one of the most important in America history. Given that the canton displays only 34 stars, it is possible that the flag was created just prior to West Virginia statehood in 1863 and the printed "LINCOLN & JOHNSON!" slogan was added shortly thereafter in preparation for the 1864 campaign.
