Press Pass for Admission to the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893
We offered this pass from the Kennel Columbian Collection last year at a similar price to other scarce passes we sold, but this one did not sell, perhaps because collectors had a press pass, didn't know the rarity or simply opted not to purchase because it has vertical folds--likely where the reporter had it in his wallet. This is a very scarce pass and even with the folds, should have a current market value of $200-$250; like the other two admission passes to the Columbian Expo in this sale we are selling it at close to a 50% discount from the current estimated retail. Shipping includes postal insurance. If one purchases several small paper items such as this the combined insured postage should be lower than the total of the figures in the listings. If the shipping/insurance works out to less, we will refund the difference once we know the exact shipping cost.
