Old Politicals Auction #4
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on 7/24/2009
Neat small ribbon about 6” long with etched log cabin in center of ribbon and unusually large flag proportionally on top of the log cabin. The flag clearly shows 26 stars with a liberty cap on top of the pole. Ordinarily stars might not mean much but the engraver took pains to place these where the star field is located. The 26 star flag was adopted in 1837 and served through WH Harrison’s term of office. Some browning in the lower right and a little dirty looking but the ribbon presents very well. Estimate: $150-175
