This coat of arms last appeared at auction in New York State. Rather good condition considering the form. Tattered skirt, staining, creasing, a puncture, and scattered small losses mostly contained within the field and lower skirt. Accompanying this banner when auctioned were perhaps six from other states indicating a national event. American origin, possibly of mid 19th century manufacture.
