  • Uncles Sam's Birthday Is This Week

    In 1989, "Uncle Sam Day" became official. A Congressional joint resolution designated September 13, 1989 as "Uncle Sam Day" (birthday of Samuel Wilson).Today marks the day in 1813 when the United States officially took on its nickname of “Uncle Sam.” The name conjures up images of a man in a top hat pointing his finger at the viewer, but the character was named for a real person — Samuel Wilson.

    Wilson was a meat packer who sent barrels of beef to the U.S. Army during the War of 1812. He stamped his barrels with “U.S.” for United States, but soldiers referred to the meat as “Uncle Sam’s,” and soon the name became synonymous for the federal government. It wasn’t until the 1860s that a political cartoonist drew Uncle Sam with a beard in a patriotic suit, and not until World War I, the character was juxtaposed with the phrase “I Want You for the U.S. Army.”

  • APIC Denver Political Memorabilia Convention an Outstanding Success

    (Denver, Colorado). This past weekend the American Political Items Collectors (APIC) held its National Convention in Denver Colorado.

    The convention was well attended and the comments heard round the convention floor was that this year's convention was one of the best ever.

    Kudos go out to Ron Puechner (and of course his lovely wife Martha) along with dozens of dedicated volunteers who made this convention an outstanding success.

    One of the highlights of the bourse was the number of dealers from around the country who went out of their way to provide free vintage campaign buttons to youngsters who attended the convention. What a great way of promoting our great hobby to the younger generation.

  • Official Inaugural Medal Still Strong

    We continue to see strength in the official inaugural medal market. Just this past month we were fortunate to have acquired a 1901 William McKinley Silver inaugural medal - it sold in 24 hours. With only 55 of these silver medals produced they truly are rare.

    Just last week we acquired 1933 and 1937 Franklin Roosevelt medals. While not as rare as the Mckinley silver medal, both have relatively low mintage (1,500 and 1,006 respectively).
    None of these medals even made it to our website.

    So if you are searching for more of the low mintage rare medals? Let us know which ones are on your wish list and we'll be happy to let you know the next time we acquire one. Or, if you have one for sale, please let us know and we will make you a very fair offer. Contact: lori@loriferber.com or 1-888-477-9222.

  • Yes, There Are Items We Won't Buy Or Sell

    Last week we were asked if there were any political memorabilia items that we will not sell. Good question, and one we had an answer to. There was a collectible that immediately came to mind that we refused to purchase or handle on consignment. In fact, we decided we would not even offer an opinion of value.

    It was... well... startling. It was just an ordinary weekend and we received a call from a gentlemen that started to explain that he owned an item that he thought we would be interested in. He was obviously uncomfortable and did not immediately share with us what the item actually was. His stated reason for the call was to discover the value of the time, although we had the impression that if we offered the right price he would have seriously considered selling it.

    What was the item that we wouldn't buy and wouldn't handle on consignment? Well if this were a TV show or American Idol, we'd cut to commercial now and leave you wondering. But its not, so here we go.

    The gentleman explained to us that at one time he worked as a school teacher in Illinois. At that time there was a young man that attended the school where he taught. And that young man had taken many tests - including an IQ test - which the gentlman still had in his possession after all these years. It was the young man's IQ test.

    And that young man whose IQ test reportedly still sits in the desk drawer of this former teacher is.... President Barack Obama. And now, as Paul Harvey used to say "you know the rest of the story".

  • JFK Library Launches New Website

    Boston, MA – The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Foundation has launched AnIdeaLivesOn.org, an online tribute to President John F. Kennedy that aims to create a multi-generational conversation about the many ways in which the legacy of our nation’s 35th president lives on today.

    Named for President Kennedy’s poignant observation that, “A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on,” the project invites the public to participate in the creation of an interactive documentary, putting a modern, human face on the enduring impact of John F. Kennedy. Stories from Congressman John Lewis, comedian Conan O’Brien, NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy, actor Martin Sheen, and Lori & Steve Ferber from Lori Ferber Collectibles.

    "We are very pleased to have been selected to participate in this amazing film and historic project" said Steve Ferber co-owner of Lori Ferber Collectibles. "John F Kennedy has always been the most collected President and we hope that our small part in this amazing endeavor helps to spread the word about the joys of political and presidential collecting".
