Pair of 39-Star Silk Parade Flags

Lot of two 39-star silk parade flags each measuring 23.5 in. x 15 in. These flags are interesting because there was never an official 39-star flag. In 1889, some flag manufacturers believed that the Dakota territory would be admitted to the Union as one state and without companions. In November 1889, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and Washington were admitted to the Union. These flags are likely from that era.

Estimate: $200 - $400
