Kennedy Cup and Saucer

Submitted by Linda:
Can you help me identify this cup and saucer? Family story is that it came from JF Kennedy dinner in Los Angeles where close family friend, now deceased, was a chef. I used Google to find out there was a fund raising dinner in June 1993 in Los Angeles. "Six month before the assassination, President Kennedy attends a Democratic Party fund-raising dinner for 150 members of the President's Club of Los Angeles. President Kennedy addresses a breakfast with Democratic State Committeewomen of California at the Hollywood Palladium.”

If you can help Linda, please click on the comments button. Thanks!

Ronald Reagan Convention Medallion

Submitted by Larry:
I recently came into possession of a bronze commemorative medallion from the 1980 GOP Convention in Detroit Michigan sponsored by Cadillac depicting the renaissance center on one side and an Oak Tree from the First GOP Convention 1854 Jackson Michigan on the other. It came in a Blue bag with Gold draw string and a slip of paper stating "Cadillac welcomes you to Detroit Michigan USA". I am not interested in getting rid of it but I cannot find anything anywhere giving any idea of its value. I want to make sure that it is properly insured and valued. Any states on how many were made and distributed would be helpful as well. This was as we all know the convention Ronald Wilson Reagan was Nominated.
