    World's Columbian Exposition Pass Chicago May 1 - Oct. 30, 1893.
    This most interesting lot has a World's Columbian Exposition complimentary pass made out to the Honorable William H. Enochs, US Representative from Ironton, Ohio. The probable reason why this pass exists today is because Mr. Enochs passed away on July 13, 1893. The ABNCo engraved pass is approximately 4 by 2.5 inches and it exhibits a portrait of Columbus that is similar to the Columbus portrait that is found on some regular admission tickets for this expo. Included with this lot is an ABNCo engraved transmittal letter addressed to Mr. Enochs, the original cover with split sides addressed to Mr. Enochs using a 2¢ Landing of Columbus stamp, complimentary pass storage envelope, plus the following ABNCo engraved regular admission tickets of Columbus, Indian with "A" overprint, Washington with "A" overprint, and Lincoln with "A" overprint. The four regular admission tickets were added later to the complimentary pass and associated items. (Total: 8 items)
