The 36 star flag was official from 1865 through 1867 during the presidential term of Andrew Johnson. Since Nevada, the 36th state was admitted to the Union in in October of 1864 undoubtedly many flagmakers anticipated the official date of the following July 4 and produced these during Abraham Lincoln's final months in office. This flag is in good condition with light wear from age, especially in the blue canton near the location where it was attached to a stick. It is an excellent small size for framing as part of a Civil War relic collection, a displ. Ay regarding Abraham Lincoln, or any historical collection regarding the history of mid 19th century America.
Regarding the star pattern, there was no established pattern for stars in the American flag until 1916. The 6x6 arrangement was common for 36 star flags, and the stars could all point in one direction, or all stars in each row could point in one direction and alternate row by row, or all stars could point in random directions, as in this example. The photos are an integral part of my description.
They will give an accurate representation, and best tell the story. I would be glad to answer any questions you may have about this flag, or flags in general.
