The flag features an unusual pattern of stars

The flag reads "For President, Abram Lincoln - For Vice President, Hannibal Hamlin" and displays an unusual pattern of stars.

It's extremely well preserved, especially considering the fact that it's well over 150 years old.

Company president Alex Winter says: "According to our research, that was a record auction price for that particular flag design."

We have some fragments of wallpaper from Lincoln's bedroom for sale.
