I noticed several pics on the internet, they seem to agree with your photo. Cooley's catalogue of 1940 shows City of Lincoln HIP Sass 1936, TB 40" M Y9D "Brightest largest and surely the finest of all true varegatas. Clear golden yellow standards, broad fiery red falls, startling in their contrast". National Gardens catalogue 1942 further states " down falling falls of velvety bright chestnut-red, conspicuous bright orange beard"
So I think you have yourself a fine historical.

I hope someone here can verify that what I have here as TB City of
Lincoln really is City of Lincoln. I got it from the HIPS Rhizome sale
a few years ago and it bloomed for the first time this year. I checked
the iris wiki and there were 2 photos that look nothing like what I have
so I added mine.

What do you think? Any assistance appreciated.
