1865 Abraham Lincoln Coffin Bunting Flag from Funeral Train
Here is your chance to own a rare and meaningful piece of history. This sale is for 2 pieces of the bunting flag that was draped around the base of Abraham Lincoln's coffin as it traveled from DC to Springfield. The letter that accompanies this explains that this bunting was given to Manion's sale house in 1989 by Ritner Holdren. It was his great grandfather that was one of the soldiers that accompanied Lincolns body while on it's way to Springfield. As far as condition…. There is some fraying around the edges. The red is quitevivid and has stars on it but they have faded a lot. The blue colored piece has faded to almost grey but the ivory stars are well pronounced on that piece. Each piece is approximated 5.75 x 3 inches. The letter does have an embossed seal over the sign of Ritner Holdren, the president of Mobile Museums. I was hoping to contact him with questions but he has since passed away. Also included is an unused 1908 postcard depicting Lincoln and the train. I am displaying this is a riker mount but may try to find a safer way to ship it since that is a glass top on there and if shatters it could damage the bunting. I will find the safest way to get it to you. May or may not be in this mount. Please ask questions befor offerding and or winning. We are unable accept returns from folks that have buyers remorse. So please only offer if you want and understand the item that is listed.High buyer to pay shipping charges shown above. Insurance is included. Continental US only this sale.

I try my best to ship within 24 hours of receiving your payment unless paid on weekends or holidays. Please see my feeback and with confidence. Because of the age of the items I sell, I do not accept returns unless I have inaccurately described the item or, of course, if it is damaged in shipping. Thanks for looking and good luck!!

After further examination it appears that the "red" bunting patch is solid with no stars. The stars vaguely appearing there are actually on the blue and ivory patch behind it. Apologies!
