    Description

    LOUISIANA PURCHASE 1904 EXPOSITION SOUVENIR "GOLD DOLLAR" MCKINLEY & JEFFERSON. An interesting 'do it yourself jewelry' boxed package featuring thin brass frames into which paper 'gold dollar coins' are inserted.  The gold dollars picture William McKinley or Thomas Jefferson and measure 5/8" in diameter.  There are seven different frames for the pictures: a stickpin, 4 pinback brooches, a lapel stud and a charm that would be attached to a chain.  These are all housed in a 4" by 5" box that reads "Louisiana Purchase 1904 Exposition. Souvenir gold Dollar Jefferson - $3.00 - McKinley."  Inside of this larger box are 5 smaller boxes with their original cotton and having the same verbage on top of each as the larger box.  The main box has split sides and wear while the smaller boxes are in fine condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
