Abraham Lincoln campaign flag sets new record

An 1860 Abraham Lincoln campaign flag was the star lot of an auction at Hake's Americana earlier this month, achieving $31,625.

The flag features an unusual pattern of stars

The flag reads "For President, Abram Lincoln - For Vice President, Hannibal Hamlin" and displays an unusual pattern of stars.

It's extremely well preserved, especially considering the fact that it's well over 150 years old.

Company president Alex Winter says: "According to our research, that was a record auction price for that particular flag design."

We have some fragments of wallpaper from Lincoln's bedroom for sale.
