    Description

    Gold Rush and Minneapolis Exonumia. Group of eight items which came out of a Minneapolis collection which consisted primarily of G.A.R. material. The most interesting item is an 1 1/4" silk covered button for a reunion of '49er's in Washington, D.C. in 1895. Other items include an ornate "Veteran Volunteer Firemen's Association" ribbon badge, a "Reception Committee" ribbon badge, three fraternal items, a George Washington Inauguration centennial ribbon and a Eugene M. Wilson for Governor ribbon. The ribbon badges are "loose" but the other ribbons are glued to board.
