Original United States Flag, issued after the admission of the State of Colorado as the 38th State, August 1, 1876 (and therefore often referred to as the "Centennial State"). The flag measures approximately 17 x 23-1/2" and is printed on silk. This is probably an early example: 34 of the stars are arranged on the blue background in a circle, with an additional star in each corner. The official flag adopted on July 4th, 1877 and in use for the next thirteen years arranged the representative stars in horizontal rows of eight and seven stars, with the standard red and white stripes representing the thirteen original states. $ 3,250
