This is a Rare 13-star American Naval Battle Ensign from 1870-1879. The flag has a large anchor at the center.
The anchor is encircled by 13 white stars. This was a favorite design style of patriotic painters, currency designers, and flag makers.
The design is completed by two grommets. 21 inches by 16 inches.

The original use of the 13-star flag dates to June 14th, 1777, each star representing a state in the newly formed Union.
Throughout the 1800 and early 1900s, the U.S. Navy enjoyed the privilege of placing only 13-stars rather than the full complement of the day.
This U.S. Navy custom continued until President Woodrow Wilson discontinued the practice by executive order in 1916.
Better conditioned examples can bring thousands at auction. $500 or Best "Reasonable Offer".

Shipping will be First Class at cost.
