Glenn Beck: I bought D-Day flag at auction
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Conservative radio host Glenn Beck says he and his Mercury One charity paid $350,000 at a Manhattan auction for a U.S. flag that flew over a ship at Normandy on D-Day.
Beck announced on his radio show and website that he was the anonymous online bidder who bought the 48-star Navy ensign at a sale of World War II artifacts and memorabilia at Bonhams last Thursday.
The tattered flag flew aboard the American-built LST 493 during D-Day operations 70 years ago. It had been estimated to sell for $25,000 to $35,000.
During Friday’s show, Beck referred to the flag as “the 20th century’s Star-Spangled Banner.”
Bonhams says it’s prohibited by law from divulging information about anonymous bidders.
