This amazing and comprehensive collection of Coney Island Pennants dates from as early as the 1910's and continues through the 1950's. The size of the pennants is wide ranging with the smallest measuring 3 1/2 x 8" and the largest measuring in at 9 1/2 x 26 1/2". The illustrations and designs on some of the pennants are truly outstanding with intricate details and ornate compositions. The quality also ranges significantly with 20% rating G, 50% rating VG and the remaining 30% rating EX or better. The grading is in reference to the vibrancy of the colors, torn tips or tassels and wearing or cracking of the paint on both the designs and lettering. The smaller pennants have brighter colors but the designs are simpler than the large scale pennants. This is overall an incredible collection and one that represents both an historic place and a significant period in American history.
