The sign was taken down by the consignor's great grandfather in 1924 and stored in the second floor of a building that had been built in 1892 and leased by the family in late 1918-early 1919. When the building was purchased by the family in 1953, the stairs to the second floor were removed during a remodeling project. The sign remained untouched on the second floor until the consignor decided to sell the property in 2010. Photos of the store outside of which the sign was displayed are included with this lot. See related lot #700. CONDITION: Stanocola button sign in excellent condition with a couple of light scratches and minimal oxidation to screw holes on outer black painted perimeter.

Group of 730 ballots from the 1864 Presidential election, from Ohio soldiers voting in the field. The majority are Abraham Lincoln – Andrew Johnson Presidential ballots depicting Lady Liberty wielding a sword with a variety of other ballot designs and counties represented. A small minority (73) are McClellan – Pendleton Presidential ballots. Of the 73 McClellan – Pendleton ballots, there are 26 having portrait vignettes of McClellan. Several paper spacers with writing of locations soldiers stationed in the South are also present along with a few examples of handwritten ballots. Additionally, some of the ballots have the names of the soldiers written on the back with a few having phrases written on them. Examples include “L. S. Holcomb Co. D 97th Ohio”, who wrote: “can’t see peace at any price”. According to the 1886 History of Morgan Co. Ohio by Charles Robertson, Leroy S. Holcomb served in the Mission Ridge, Kenesaw Mountain, Atlanta, and Franklin, TN. Holcomb was seriously wounded at the Battle of Franklin later that year, and discharged. He subsequently studied medicine and graduated from the Ohio Medical College. Another soldier-signed ballot “Jas. R. Earich Co. E. 78 OVI” is for Sergeant James R. Earich of the 78th Ohio Company E. The Ohio History site states , “Earich took up the hazardous task of carrying a flag and fortunately survived the Battle of Atlanta. He was awarded a medal for bravery for his conduct on July 22, 1864. When Earich was offered a promotion to the rank of 2nd Lieutenant, he declined because he did not wish to give up bearing the colors.” Another ballot with the pencil inscription “H. N. Arnold Co. J 94th Ohio Vol Inf” is for H. Newton Arnold, 1st Lieutenant for the 94th Regiment of Ohio. Additional Lincoln/Johnson ballots include two (2) larger ballots with red, white, and blue and crossed flags, drums, swords, stacked rifles and winged eagle design, 3 ballots with the Union flag only, 13 ballots with no design on yellow paper from Morgan Co., and 10 handwritten Lincoln – Johnson ballots.

Lot 296: War of 1812 White House Artifact & Custom Box War of 1812 White House Artifact & Custom Box Lot 296: War of 1812 White House Artifact & Custom Box

Remnant of a burned White House timber removed from the White House during the 1950 renovations, from the 1814 White House fire started by the British during the War of 1812. Bears plaque to side reading “Original White House Material/ Removed in 1950″ with the Presidential Seal in the center. Housed in a custom made marquetry box comprised of walnut and oak from White House repairs and cedar from the White House grounds. Construction diagram pasted to the interior of the lid and signed by the maker F. C. Mayes. Wood artifact – 4 1/2″ x 2 1/2”. 2″ H x 6″ W x 3 3/4″ D. Note: From 1949 to 1952, the White House underwent a major renovation. President Harry Truman noticed when he moved in that the White House was quite dilapidated, and pressed Congress for funds to refurbish the mansion. In the House of Representatives, the White House renovation was overseen by the Public Works Committee, on which sat first-term Congressman Gerald Ford. Truman gave Ford and other committee members a personal tour of the White House, pointing out its defects. What Ford remembered most, however, “was when he took us into the Oval Office and I saw that little sign on his desk: ‘The Buck Stops Here’. I thought, Well, that’s a good description of a President’s job”. The three-year project included tearing down all but the exterior walls and rebuilding everything within. In the process, workers found charred lumber from the burning of the White House in 1814. Clearly these structurally unstable pieces could not remain. Instead, they were removed and sold to the public as souvenirs, as directed by the Commission on the Renovation of the Executive Mansion. In March of 1952, a small ceremony marked the end of the renovation and the opening of the refurbished and structurally-sound White House. Provenance: From the estate of Captain Gordon Wells, member of the Secret Service’s Uniformed Division, the White House Police, from 1943 through 1967. During his tenure, Wells received mementos from sitting Presidents and First ladies of 5 administrations, from Franklin Roosevelt through Lyndon B. Johnson. CONDITION: Both artifacts in very good condition. [See more photos →]

It was designed and built by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) of the California Institute of Technology under the direction of Dr. William H. Pickering. The satellite instrumentation of Explorer-I was designed and built by Dr. James Van Allen of the State University of Iowa. The satellite was launched from Cape Canaveral (now Cape Kennedy) in Florida at 10:48 P.M. EST on 31 January 1958 by the Jupiter-C vehicle–a special modification of the Redstone ballistic missile–that was designed, built, and launched by the Army Ballistic Missile Agency (ABMA) under the direction of Dr. Wernher Von Braun. Jupiter-C, a direct descendant of the German A-4 (V-2) rocket, was originally developed in 1955-1956 as a high-performance rocket for testing purposes. The Jupiter-C has its origins in the United States Army's Project Orbiter in 1954. The project was canceled in 1955, however when the decision was made to proceed with Project Vanguard.

Lot 795: Motlow Lynchburg TN Whiskey Jug Motlow Lynchburg TN Whiskey Jug Lot 795: Motlow Lynchburg TN Whiskey Jug

Scarce Lem Motlow, nephew and successor of Jack Daniels, advertising stoneware whiskey jug. White slip glaze with blue stenciled lettering that reads : All Goods Worth Price Charged/ Lem Motlow/Lynchburg, Tenn. 8 1/8" H. Circa 1910. Note: Lem Motlow (1869-1947) was said to have had a head for numbers, and originally worked as a bookkeeper for his uncle's company. In 1907, faced with failing health, Jack Daniels gave the distillery to Motlow and another nephew. Motlow soon bought out the other nephew, but his whiskey production in Lynchburg was short lived. In 1910, Tennessee passed a statewide prohibition law, forcing the company to shift its distilling operations to Birmingham and St. Louis. Motlow challenged the law in a test case that ended up before the Tennessee Supreme Court, and he eventually became a Tennessee state senator. He continued to operated the distillery for 40 years. While some glass Motlow bottles survive, stoneware jugs bearing his imprint from the pre-Prohibition era are scarce. Provenance: the collection of Benjamin Dysart, Brentwood, Tennessee. CONDITION: Some light chipping and glaze loss to spout, scattered firing flaws to body, missing the original wire and wood handle. [See more photos →]
