For this week I have a surprise to share. Well, an unexpected surprise for me. I purchased a big old medical book from the early 1900’s. Some really cool color medical images I have plans for in my house. I have an antique medical/oddities theme for one of the rooms in my house. Anyway, I was flipping through the big old 1000 page book and what came falling out?
At first thought, I was thinking, this isn’t real. What are the chances? But, I looked up Abraham Lincoln Memorial items on google and there it was. A framed one sold for $375!! I am almost tempted to keep it, as I like holding onto rare things that have meaning behind them. But, I have so much stuff, I really cannot keep anything else. So, this is a Lincoln paper ribbon you would pin onto your coat for Lincoln Funeral Procession. How cool! Let that be a reminder to you, always check your old books! This is not the first time I have found something hidden in an old book, so it does happen!
Great find! I just imagine how you feel… I would want to keep everything like this too:)
