Hsuan Tung coin

hsuan_tung_coin.jpg For sale. In very good condition. Approximately the size of a U.S. quarter.

On the front: First Year of Hsuan Tung. Manchurian Provinces.

On the back are Manchurian characters which I have no way to decipher or translate.

I'm not quite sure how this came to be in my family's possession (like so many other coins and paper money, I'm still sorting through). I have a feeling my dad may have picked it up in the South Pacific during World War II.

For a better understanding of the importance of Chinese money and even Emperor Hsuan Tung, read, "The Fight For The Republic In China," by Bertram Lenox Simpson. The full text can be found on line and for free at Project Gutenberg. As for myself, I haven't read it. It's about 150,000 words, or 400 pages.

NRA goldtone tie clip

nra_goldtone_tie_clip.jpg

For sale. The emblem says "National Rifle Assn of America." I believe this was from either the late 1960s or early 1970s. I'm guessing this was a give away my dad received when he joined the NRA.

Win With Ike political pin

win_with_ike_pin_face.jpg For sale. Win With Ike political pin.

This is one of those pins that changes depending on which way you turn it. Turn it one way, and the image of Dwight D. Eisenhower appears. Turn it another way, and it reads, "Win With Ike."

Update June 3, 2006: I just noticed on the back is the following: "A Product of Pictorial Productions Inc., New Rochelle, New York." And, what appears to be a union label.
