Columbian Expo new Acquisition

Recommended Posts

Columbus day has come and gone but the posts about Columbus and those here on the exonumia forum got me looking. <br>

Well it didn't take me long to come up with something and I was so impressed when I received it that I just had to share it.<br> The Pictures are a little brighter than the acual token. But there is just the right amount of patina and dust particles<br>to show that this is a genuine and well taken care of souvenir.<p>

1893 World's Columbian Exposition

Eglit 23 --- HK 154 Brass 37mm (Type 1, Large Letters)<p><p>

Just imagine what it was like to actually live in that era and attend the expo.<br>

Luckily tokens like this are still available to provide a imaginary path to times gone by.
