How did the flag get to be owned by auctioneer?

How comes that that specific flag isn’t owned by Agudas chasidei Chabad.
How did it get to an auction?

First — why doesn’t this say comminuted content?

Second — “It is now presented at the Kedem Auction House in Jerusalem alongside a US flag that was received by the Rebbe from President Hoover.” This is INCORRECT. On the provenance of the flag, it says from a secretary. It should also be verified in the Rebbe’s letters (which he wrote to his wife while away) whether he makes any mention of receiving a flag.  

Incredible!

Was it the same white house as today?

How do we know this to be the real flag?

Would love to get a hold of this so it can be copied and given to children in school

Zalman,
they may allow you to get a high resolution copy

Who vouched for all this?

Is there ANY corroborating evidence to this story and to all the items on auction?
I wouldn’t buy if there aren’t at least two sources.

Why it seems that they are wearing winter clothing in summer? Especially the Rebbe?
