A very rare souvenir!

Recommended Posts

Want a REALLY special souvenir? Well, I'm not 100% sure this came from the 1964 NY Fair, but that was by far the biggest use of them. In any event it's a truly rare item indeed.

I'll bet the bidding on this will make the three thousand dollar Expo flag look like chump change

It sure looks beat up - I wonder where it's been all these years.

Maybe a candidate for a Smithsonian-type restoration (using authentic materials, but not restoring the function) as opposed to a TV/technology collector, who would typically like to restore it to operation. 

One went for  $21,433.67 in January 2013
