Hi folks. I see these tickets, which sold for $10.50, and the seller states they are reprints. https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/columbian-exposition-ticket-reprints-1873855331 I also see these tickets, which sold for $895, https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/worlds-columbian-exposition-admit-one-22935805 The pictures are too small to get details but they exactly the same to me. How does one tell the difference between a reprint and an original? I'm asking because I have a group of six tickets, one of each type like theirs. They are all marked A except Handel. Before I attempt to sell them I want to confirm that they are originals. FWIW, I also have a Children's Special Ticket, a Child's Ticket with attached stub, a Manhattan Day ticket with detached stub, a Chicago Day ticket with attached stub, and a small unassuming ticket marked 1/S that I haven't figured out yet what it is. Everything is in near mint condition except for the 1/S ticket. Thanks
gabatgh posted a topic in 1893, Chicago, United States - World's Columbian ExpositionSo we have, that we're supposed to sell, some 1893 World Columbian Expo tickets. There are six Admit the Bearer in excellent condition, with each one having a different face. One October 9th, Chicago Day ticket with the stub attached in excellent condition One October 9th, Chicago Day Child's ticket with the stub attached in excellent condition One October 21st, Manhattan Day ticket with the stub detached but in otherwise excellent condition One Children’s Special Ticket, apparantly good for the entire expo. This is brown and has crease at the bottom left corner, and a water stain at the top right. The last says Good Only on Day of Sale 1/S is brown and the right side is a bit beat up. What exactly is this Good Good Only on Day of Sale ticket for? Was this a like a ride ticket? From what we can tell, there were six different styles of the Admit the Bearer's and we have all six. Can we call this a "set" even though the numbers don't match or aren't relevant to one another? We've had ephemera sets of items in the past, were sometimes one piece was missing or badly damaged. We've found the item to either fill in the empty spot or replaced the damaged item. With these two smaller tickets that are brown, are they of atypical quality? Should we try to get better versions of them to enhance the lot of them? Thanks so much for advice!
I was surprised to know that tickets for the 2017 Astana International Expo are currently being sold. Seems like if you bought the tickets before June 21, 2016 you would have gotten 50 percent off. Now it's 30 percent off. Come July 1 it will be 20 percent off till July 10. Wow, they are already selling tickets.
