    Invitation to U.S. Grant's Inaugural Ball, 1873 A lovely and ornate engraved invitation to the ball held in honor of the occasion of Grant's second inauguration. The invitation, measuring 7.75" x 9.75" is hand addressed to "Mrs. L. P. Luckey" who is "...respectfully invited to attend the Inauguration Ball on the evening of March 4, 1873..." Below are listed the managers of the ball including political luminaries such as Roscoe Conklin, Hannibal Hamlin, Simon Cameron, Oliver P. Morton, Bung H. Lindner, John A. Logan and many others. One horizontal fold and very light soiling do little to detract from this crisp, clean engraving with Grant's presidential emblem at top center. Simply matted and ready for framing. A fabulous piece of ephemera! From the collection of Bradley O'Leary. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
