Really nice additions to the collection, TNG!

This is such a great thread. It embodies everything that numismatics is all about. Coins & exonumia, history, collections, education, collaboration. If there were a "Staff Picks" designation for topics, this one would be worthy.

1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition
Fairbanks Scales Weight Ticket


Not an admission ticket but still a rather scarce souvenir.

(images will update when I get a chance to take a better pictures)
Fairbanks Morse and Company began in 1823 when inventor Thaddeus Fairbanks opened an ironworks in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. Fairbanks Scales is a company founded in 1830, when Thaddeus Fairbanks invented the platform scale.
The scale that weighed a person of 150 lbs and that this ticket was produced for, was most likely located in The Machinery Building at the 1904 St Louis Worlds Fair or Louisiana Purchase Exposition.
It was a platform scale that probably looked like the one shown in the center of this weight ticket one would keep as an Exposition Souvenir.
Platform scales were useful in weighing anything from sacks of grain to truckloads of freight and were made in all sizes.

Thaddeus Fairbanks with his brother Erastus Fairbanks, formed the E. & T. Fairbanks & Company and there selling thousands of scales, first in the United States, later in Europe, South America, and even Imperial China. Scales were integral to business as marine and railway shippers charged by weight.
The company not only made scales but also windmills, engines, tractors, radios, pumps and locomotives.
Today, Fairbanks Scales is a privately owned company in Kansas City, Missouri, that manufactures scales. It could be considered a successor to the company, but is not a direct descendant of the original Fairbanks Morse and Company.

1903 Louisiana Purchase Exposition
Dedication Ceremonies Ticket


My long awaited ticket that has two great men pictured on the front. Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt.

On April 30, 1903, one hundred years to the day after the signing in Paris of the Louisiana Purchase agreement, President Theodore Roosevelt is in St Louis, Missouri, to dedicate the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, which did not open until one year later. Roosevelt is visible in the center of the front row of a grandstand, which was also the speaker's platform.

The exposition opened on April 30, 1904, and continued until December 1, 1904. It was the first world's fair to turn a profit. It featured the participation of 62 nations, 43 U.S. states, and the federal government. The fair comprised more than 1,500 individual buildings interconnected by 75 miles of roads and walkways. The infrastructure and buildings required three years to construct. A special exposition company was created for coordinating the process. Nearly the entire population of St. Louis was involved in the work. The scale of the plan was so immense that the fair, originally scheduled for 1903, had to be delayed by a year.

Win a Ford V-8 Ticket
at The 1935 San Diego Exposition



This is an apparently unused ticket to win a Ford at the 1935 San Diego Exposition and will accompany my newly acquired 1935 V-8 Medal from the same.
In the mid 70's I walked right past the Ford Exhibit Building in Balboa Park to enter a very smokey rock concert and never even knew I was on the very grounds of this California Pacific International Exposition, a World's Fair that was open from 1935 to 1936, in San Diego, Southern California.

See this post where I posted the medal. http://goccf.com/t/301479&whichpage=176#3147653

Thank you guys, still hoping to get a 1905 Louis and Clark Portland Day, A 1897 Tennessee Centennial, an 1898 Trans Mississippi someday. I have learned that if I'm patient they do come along at a good price, but it could be a long wait.
I have some in my watch list that re-list over and over but only watching for searching the "View similar items" tab. The sellers want too much for me.
Occasionally a weird obscure one like the 1935 Ford pops up and I was glad to get it.
My favorite album!
