Wendell Willkie Watermark

Submitted by Randy:
Hello! I am in possession of a Wendell Willke watermark with a portrait of Willke on the left half above the words 'We Want Willke!', and the words 'A Genuine Watermark Created by The Sinclair Company 1940' on the right half. I think it may have been a giveaway from the New York Times when Willke was running against Roosevelt's attempt for a third term. The date is right but the Times part may be inaccurate. I would place its condition somewhere in the Very Good to Excellent range. I would like to sell it, assuming it has some value.

John F Kennedy Lighter

Submitted by Travis:
It is coin lighter that has JFK's face on the front, and the Statue of Liberty on the back. When you slide it open, it has a lighter inside. The flint still sparks. On the side with JFK's face it says John F. Kennedy across the top and "35th President-USA" across the bottom. Says "1917" on the middle left of JFK's face, and "1963" on the middle right of JFK's face.
