Very Rare "Swiped" President Truman Cigarette Case

This is a fantastic piece of Presidential history that shows the rarely seen sense of humor of President Truman. This is a rare official Presidential gift from the Truman White House. Despite the inscription I cannot guaranty this was actually stolen off of the desk of president Truman I can guaranty it is in fact a very rare President Truman VIP gift. This cigarette case is in very nice shape for its age with only a few scratch as can be seen in the photos. The printing while slightly worn is still strong. This case is also fairly heavy and well made not like the much lighter Truman era campaign cigarette case that I have seen.  I obtained this directly from the personal collection of a former White House staffer. These are very hard to find and I have only seen one other for sale  in all my years of presidential  collecting. This is truly a museum quality item. $750.00

Rare President Eisenhower Gift Lighter

Presidential gift from President Eisenhower administration. The stamp on the bottom of the Zippo was used from 1953 to 1956 from 1953 to mid 1954 thw cases were chrome plated steel and from mid 1954 until late 1955 they were made of chrome plated brass. I tested this case withy a magnet and it was not magnetic so this lighter dates between mid 1954 to late 1955 well within President Eisenhower's first term.  The lighter is in good condition with some scratches and ware around the gold rim please see photos . it is still in great condition for its age and with some fluid and new flint you should have no trouble getting it to work if you so choice to. That's why I love the Zippo Presidential lighters they are built like tanks.

Original President Kennedy Bill Signing Pen 40mm version

This is a very rare Bill Signing pen made for and used by President Kennedy throughout his entire Presidency. These pens were made by Esterbrook (a company which is now out of business) The bill signing pen has a black barrel and a clear Lucite top. Etched into the barrel of the pen are the words “The President-The White House”. The pen I have is an original 40mm inscription length version a type made for and ordered by The Kennedy White House to be used by President Kennedy as official bill signers. These were not White House gift pens. It was made for and used by the Kennedy White House as the official Bill signers when they ran out of the 37mm version. These pens were among the last Pens used by President Kennedy. Again this is an original 40mm version and not the much more common 43mm version used by LBJ. This particular Kennedy bill Signer is of the brown/gold imprinting as apposed to the somewhat more common white imprinting. According to John Loring the Author The Presidential Pen and one of the foremost authorities of Presidential Bill Signers and gift pens both the 40mm White and Brown/Gold imprinting were made for and used by President Kennedy.

Official Kennedy Bill signing pens are among the most sought after and valuable of all JFK collectibles.

Below are various photos of President Kennedy using this type of pen to sign bills throughout his Presidency. The last two photos are from original news wire photos that I owned and sold. They show President Kennedy using and giving out to VIP's these pens in 1961 and again in 1963 showing that he used this pens exclusively throughout his entire Presidency. The photos are for reference only.

This would make a great gift for any Presidential or Kennedy collector who wants a true museum quality original JFK item to display and cherish. $1250.00

Very rare Sterling Silver Gift Pen

Silvercraft made a couple of different pens for JFK a Senator Pen, Pens for the Inauguration but the hardest to find and most sought after are the ones he gave out as official VIP Presidential gifts like this one. According to John Loring book The Presidential Pens Silvercraft made up Presidential Kennedy's first personalized presidential gift pen. This is one of these very rare pens and it is in excellent condition. This is a must have for the discriminating Kennedy collector.

Original Kennedy White house Parker Gift Pen

This is an original Parker jotter gift pen made for The Kennedy White House and given out by President Kennedy. They were first used in 1952 and we have documentation to this in a letter written in 1952by Evelyn Lincoln (President Kennedy's personal secretary) to Mr. Daniel Parker (The President of The Parker Pen Company) thanking him for furnishing the President with specially imprinted "Jotter" ball points for use as "Presentations and Mementos". These Parker Jotters are one of the most famous or perhaps infamous of all pens associated with The Kennedy White House. In fact this pens have an almost mystical appeal. One of the reason for this is because the Kennedy Presidential Library reproduced these pens and sold them at the library. Unscrupulous or unknowing dealers often tried to represent these reproduction as true treasure from Camelot. According to John Loring who wrote the bible on Presidential Pens.  The original pens can be easily be distinguished from the reproduction by the following Kennedy's signature is smaller in the original close to the same length of the wording The White House. The original pens have metal thread on the inside the newer one are plastic. The Threading on the original is finer and the reproduction threading is thicker and has a notch above the threading. The top of the pen on the originals is more smooth without the ridge on the reproductions. In fact John Loring looked at this pen and confirmed it was original. So if you are looking for a rare Kennedy item look no further this is as rare as it gets in fact this is the only one of these pens I have ever had up for sale. I was lucky to get this pen myself directly from the personal collection of a former White House staffer along with a couple other Kennedy pens. The pen shows light use but it its in excellent condition for its age. You can now own an original piece of Camelot that is one of the most famous and replicated of all Kennedy White House gifts. $1250.00

Original Kennedy White house Parker Jotter 45

This is an original Parker 45 Jotter made for The Kennedy White House and given out by President Kennedy in his latter years in The White House. According to John Loring who wrote the bible on  Presidential Pens the parker Jotter was JFK's standard gift pen in the latter part of his administration. In fact one of these pens was found in one of his oval office desk drawers when he was assassinated. These Kennedy White House Parker Jotter 45 are one of the most difficult to find and sought after Kennedy items there are. They are even harder to find then the first Kennedy White House Jotters. While they were not reproduced by The Kennedy Library there are modern fakes out there which unscrupulous or unknowing dealers often try to represent these reproduction as true treasure from Camelot. According to John Loring the actually Kennedy White House Parker Jotter 45 can be verified using most of the same methods used to authenticate the earlier Kennedy White House Parker Jotters from the Kennedy Library reproductions. The original pens can be easily be distinguished from the reproduction by the following Kennedy's signature is smaller in the original close to the same length of the wording The White House. The original pens have metal thread on the inside the newer one are plastic. The Threading on the original is finer and the reproduction threading is thicker and has a notch above the threading. The top of the pen on the originals is more smooth without the ridge on the reproductions. In fact John Loring looked at this pen and confirmed it was original. So if you are looking for a rare Kennedy item look no further this is as rare as it gets in fact this is the only one of these pens I have ever had up for sale. I was lucky to get this pen myself directly from the personal collection of a former White House staffer along with some other very rare Presidential pens. In short this is a truly magnificent piece of Camelot that is almost impossible to find in any condition and to find one like this in fantastic condition with its original box is almost unheard of. $1500.00

Secret Service White House ID Pin

Used and Owned by Special Agent George Hickey

This is an actual Kennedy White House era Secret Service White House identification pin from the estate of Special Agent George W. Hickey. This pin shows some signs of actually have been warn but it is in very good condition for its age please see photos. They are gold fairly large I include the photo of the pin being offered sitting on a Kennedy White House matchbook for size comparison they are not included. Special Agent George W. Hickey was a Secret Service Agent assigned for executive protection for The Kennedy White House and he was assigned to the lead follow up car on the fateful Dallas motorcade on  22 Nov 1963. The Warren Commission reported: "Special Agent George W. Hickey, Jr., in the rear seat of the Presidential follow-up car, picked up and cocked an automatic rifle as he heard the last shot. At this point the cars were speeding through the underpass and had; left the scene of the shooting, but Hickey kept the automatic weapon ready as the car raced to the hospital. Most of the other Secret Service agents in the motorcade had drawn their sidearms. What has unfortently made George Hickey famous and what will forever tie him to the end of Camelot is that he was accused of being the person responsible for the Death of President Kennedy by Bonar Menninger in both a book called Mortal error and later a documentary titled JFK The Smoking Gun. He claimed that after the first shot, Hickey stood up and lost his balance, and accidentally discharging his gun into the back of Kennedy’s head. The photos of the Hickey are just for refrense and are not encluded however I am including a copy of Special Agent George Hickey's Executive Office building ID Tag as well as his Association of Retired Secret Service Agents ID Card. $100.00

Extraordinarily Rare Reagan Assassination Pen

This is the rarest President Reagan Pen I have ever had. This pen is from a incredibly historical significant point in American history. The 1981 assignation attempt of President Ronald Reagan and his miraculous recovery. It is the opinion of many historians that the assassination attempt and Presidential Reagan's remarkable recover and the way he was able to brilliantly turn the resulting sympathy and good will into political capital that steam rolled over Democratic objection to his political agenda.

 

This is a pen especial made for president Reagan's emergency surgery and recovery at George Washington University Hospital,  From March to April o1981.It was given out to his Doctors and Support Staff in attendance. I got this directly from a person who was among the first wave of White House people that swarmed the hospital when the President was brought there. He spent 4 straight days there before he was relived. He was again at the hospital during the later part of his stay and it was for that service that he received the pen.

 While Presidential gifts including pens are often made for Presidential Trips or special occasions I have only heard of one other pen made for a hospital stay or procedure and that was the one Regan gave out to his Doctors and support staff for his prostrate operation in 1987.

 

This is the only one of these pens I have ever seen come up for sale or in fact actually seen in person. Hopefully there will never again be a reson for sucg a pen to be made. I cant begin to state how rare this pen is and saying that it is in a fact a true museum piece is barely scratching the surface.  The pen itself is in excellent conditions. 

Printed on the pen is the following.

 Thanks for your Prayers

Ronald Reagan

George Washington University Hospital

March - April 1981
