FRYING PAN SHOALS, N.C. (WFMY)-- Remember the American flag that captivated millions who watched in live streams, via Explore.org, as Florence winds battered and shredded it?

It appears the flag was shredded but not destroyed and you have a chance to own what's left of it.

The flag was atop the Frying Pan Tower that sits in the Atlantic Ocean off the North Carolina Coast and thousands watched the shredding of Old Glory as the storm rolled into the Carolina coast.

There's a three day auction on eBay that opened Thursday at 10 p.m. and it will close Sunday at 10 pm.
