VERY FINE AND EXTREMELY RARE EXAMPLE OF THIS 9-STAR CONFEDERATE FLAG PATRIOTIC USED FROM FLORIDA. ONLY TWO EXAMPLES FROM FLORIDA ARE RECORDED.

The ninth star represents the admission of Arkansas, which was followed only three days later by North Carolina. Due to the short time period there were fewer 9-Star Confederate Patriotic designs produced than any other flag design (7 thru 13 stars). Surviving examples are rare. This example used from Florida is one of only two 9-Star Flag uses recorded in the Briggs census. The other is offered in the following lot.
