This Guidon was in my personal collection until recently. It needs to be re-mounted, as it is basically complete but shows some material gaps from shifting of the silk. A good re-mount should stabilize it. The colors have run into each other (as is common) and the gold painted stars are turning to a green patina. This happens when a copper alloy is used in the original paint and the oxidation process takes over after several decades. It is 100% original and looks striking with a nice frame. The last guidon in this general condition sold at auction in the last year or two for close to $10,000. As flags seem to be one of the hottest items on the market today, I'm sure this one won't last long at my price, which is more than fair.
