    Great catch !!
    New Orleans World's Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exhibition of 1884

    The 1884 World's Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition was held in New Orleans at least in part to advertise the city's commercial revitalization following the end of the Reconstruction era. Also to commemorate the centennial of the first shipment of cotton from the United States to England and to advertise the cotton industry.

    Thanks Don I?m proud of it When I got it I didn?t know what it was but I did see a shield so I knew no matter what i was going to love it. That?s a once in a lifetime find as far as I?m concerned.

    It really is something special to me it?s big, heavy, date 1884-5 (unique) says New Orleans and also tied in a very special and personal memory for me. When I was 14 me and my friends would pack in my friend?s mother?s old Impala (He was the first one to get his drivers license at 15) and we would drive the 50 miles every weekend to downtown New Orleans World Fair in 1984 every weekend that year that?s where we ordered our first beers at a actual bar. I think about that very very often So I was supposed to find and save this New Orleans history. i collect all my childhood memories Click image for larger version.
