Wrong number of stars for the 1860's, War of Northern Agression or not...

1859 to 1861 would be 33 stars, but if it's from 1858~1859 then 32 stars would be Ok.

Maybe the artist couldn't count...or took artistic license...

...oh, I see now...  I got caught up in the old geometric fairy tail about Betsy Ross insisting on 5 pointed stars because you can cut them in one cut.  I'm embarrassed that I never noticed the proud tradition of six pointed stars in early patriotic Jewish-American imagery. :)
