    World's Columbian Exposition 1893 Admittance Tickets.
    This is a really nice collection of tickets that grade Uncirculated or better. This lot starts with the key ABNCo engraved admittance ticket for this history-making exposition, the elusive Handel ticket. The next ticket is the second scarcest, that of Benjamin Franklin. The next four tickets are of the "without A overprint" variety and include the Indian, Columbus, Washington, and Lincoln tickets. Next is a Good Only on Day of Sale 3/H ticket that tells us it was for the month of July. The following is a Children's (7 through 17 years of age) Special Ticket Series V which sold for the reduced rate of ten cents from October 10th through the 21st. Next, we see a Chicago Day Adult Series B ticket with stub, a Chicago Day Child's (7 through 11 years of age) Series X ticket with stub, and a Manhattan Day ticket with stub. The popularity of these tickets has picked up a vast amount of momentum in the last decade. (Total: 11 items)
