WCE 1893-Clean, Excellent “Stand” Ticket for Stand-24/S-24
While we have always had Columbian tickets on our radar, since selling John Kennel's fabulous examples of so many rare tickets in the last two years we have had very few at least by our standards to offer. But our standards are a tad higher than most and you will find some nice and scarce tickets and passes in our store. And, we have a few really wonderful finds form other fairs, as well.
We're always looking for stand tickets and they seem to pop up occasionally on Ebay and they fall into two categories--excellent opportunities to purchase at low prices or unfortunately, more often at ridiculously high prices. The typical pattern seems to that virtually all Columbian tickets are overpriced about 90% of the time, except on those occasional times when a stamp or coin dealer found one and felt he or she was asking a lot--and it happened to be a rarity. Few folks other than Columbian collectors (ie most dealers!) have much knowledge of the rarity or market value of Columbian tickets.
This is a stand ticket that is hardly common, but compared to others, it seems to show up a bit more often.
