1138   image1893 Columbian Exposition. Unmarked sterling silver (59 x 33mm). Designed as an envelope (gold washed inside) with applied Uncle Sam embossed "stamp" at upper right with text "Will Not Permit."

The hand engraving reads "W.F. Souvenir, Chicago, Ill." It is likely that this rare pre-opening piece was given or sold to those who were invited to attend the Dedication Day ceremony.
