    United States International Exposition Philadelphia 1876 Tickets Choice Crisp Uncirculated
    World's Columbian Exposition 1893 Rare Caxton Company Envelope.
    This was also known as the Centennial Exposition. This was the first official World's Fair that was held on United States soil. This lot has two tickets with blue serial numbers, two tickets with red serial numbers, and one of each color with the "Fifty Cents" overprint.
    The Caxton Company bought all remaining tickets from the Columbian Exposition when it closed. They sold a set of six engraved tickets and five general admission and special day tickets to collectors. This lot contains only the rare Caxton Co. envelope, as this was often thrown away. This example is not graded, but shows extensive edge wear. It is in fragile condition and is almost split in two. There will be no returns on this lot for any reason. (Total: 7 items)
