    Description

    1893 World's Fair Tickets Near Set (4 Diff.) With Original Envelope. Chicago was the gateway to the world when the "World's Columbian Exposition" was held in 1893. So much more than just a typical fair, this event celebrated the 400th Anniversary of Christopher Columbus (when it was still politically correct to do so) and was a celebration of culture and society at large. The event exposed the city of Chicago showcasing it's architecture and the arts. Offered is a group of four different full May 1, 1893 tickets, each presenting at the Mint level, featuring Abe Lincoln, George Washington, Christopher Columbus and an unnamed Native American Indian Chief. Also included is an envelope from the Caxton Co. of Chicago which it seems used them to sell or give out to clients.
