    World's Columbian Exposition: Three New York Naval Parade Tickets, including: a Lady's Ticket and a Gentleman's Ticket from the New York Committee of One Hundred, dated October 11, 1892, both measuring 5.5" x 3.5" in beige and yellow. Stubs include unbroken perforations and admit the bearers to Pier 41 at the foot of Leroy Street for Starin Steamer No. 3 to be taken to the harbor for the parade. Coupon stubs attached are noted as ticket numbers 772 and 880. Extremely rare. Both were folded in 1892 and show the old crease but it is light enough that at a glance it is unseen. Also included is a 6" x 4.5" beige-orange ticket from The St. Nicholas Society of New York with perforated stub attached on heavy paper. The ticket admits the bearer to Steamer "Cepheus" for passage to the Columbian Celebration Naval Review, Thursday April 27, 1893. Ticket #1188. Mint condition. All three tickets are exceptionally rare individually, and have never been seen as a group to our knowledge. From the collection of Norm Bolotin.
