    FIVE LARGER MEDALS..

    Please note: Autographs from the Leonard Finger collection have not been autenticated by Spence/Grad but we believe these autographs to be as stated.

    There are two 37mm. medals (one in gilded white metal, the other in white metal) commemorating 100 Performances by Ernst Possart at the Thalia Theatre in New York 1888 (the gilded medal with inscription in German). The other medals are all in white metal and include a 40mm. souvenir produced by Tony Pastor in 1895 to commemorate his "30th Year As A Manager In New York City", a 37mm. child’s Free Admission to any concert by Frederick Innes at the "St. Louis Exposition Children’s Festival October 10, 1896", and a 44mm. medal showing "Ada Rehan 1893" and "The Silver Statue Justice of the State of Montana." (BU and likely issued at the Chicago’s World’s Fair of 1893).
