The condition of this new war rug is excellent. This rug is extremely well knotted and truly stands out as such. The colors are exceptional in this rug and are used very nicely in the flags as well as the dove. The two contrasting blues are extremely beautiful. The spelling in this 9/11 rug is one of the clearest in all the war rugs we have at warrug.com. This is very rare and quite a collectible.
