Pre-Sale: 1933 (Chicago's Century of Progress Specifically?) Rare Chauffeur's License/Badge
This is an original 1933 State of Illinois chauffeur's license and while it was with Century of Progress items, we cannot say if it was issued specifically or the Exposition; we do know that it was issued in 1933 and was good for use/identification within Illinois for that year. It's certainly a scarce item and it would make a nice companion piece to COP 1933-34 pieces.
It's just another example of the type of material to be included in our very large September 1 sale.
It's very difficult to say 'this is current market value' as items such as this show up very infrequently and you might find them, like many collectibles, for almost nothing in a garage sale....or more appropriately for $50-$75 (our estimate) in an auction or on Ebay. As always, we try to sell at what we feel is wholesale or below wholesale cost.
