    World's Columbian Exposition: Raymond Vacation Excursions Fair Admissions Ticket. One of the rarest of all admission tickets to the World's Columbian Exposition. Ticket in blue ink on beige coupon given to travelers as part of their package to the fair, good for one admission to the World's Columbian Exposition, managed by Raymond and Whitcomb. Twelve such tickets were given to some guests. This coupon was used in lieu of actual tickets supplied by the fair and were to be exchanged at the gates, valid until October 31, 1893, this Number 10096. We've never seen another and consider it exceedingly rare if not unique in the hobby. Folded long ago; flat, very nice, but does show its age. From the collection of Norm Bolotin.

    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.
