Seller Notes: Please study the photos carefully. As expected, a flag of this age has fading and holes throughout its entirety. Many antique flag collectors prefer such signs of age and character, but be sure that this is your style, too.
 
This auction is for a 32 star antique flag, measuring 39 inches by 77 inches.  For flags of this age and prior, it is a relatively small size and could possibly be framed, resulting in a killer piece for a restaurant or large home.   

This period example was made to indicate the admission of Minnesota as the 32nd state on May 11, 1858 and remained accurate until the admission of Oregon on February 14, 1859.  Because 32 stars flags were only "correct" for roughly eight months, they are extremely rare.  Some collectors estimate that there may be just a few dozen in existence.  If you need a 32 star flag for your collection, this might be your only chance at one.  

Additionally, notice this particular flag's canton and how it encompasses around half of the entire length of the flag.  Finally, further notice that the stars are canted towards the 1:00 position, rather than facing upwards towards the 12:00 position.  Both features are quite unique and add to the overall flavor of this particular flag, a true gem.   

Finally, a fellow eBay member gave me a few more interesting details regarding this flag.  He told me that this was a government issued flag and originally measured 42 inches by 80 inches, prior to shrinking down to its current size of 42 inches by 80 inches.  Very interesting.  He additionally confirmed my excitement and stated, "This is a TRULY great flag."    

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you.
