Elder and Zerbe 1908
I collect tokens and medals related to Farran Zerbe, Thomas Elder, and their on again/off again friendship and conflicts. I recently acquired Farran Zerbe's copy of Thomas Elder's invitation to a dinner in New York following the 1908 ANA convention in Philadelphia. Inspired by the small invitation with an attached coin, I went after the 1908 ANA convention badge designed by Farran Zerbe, also with an attached coin. The latter came from the recent auction of Don Young's collection by Holabird Western Americana. I wanted several other badges from Don's collection, but I was outbid on the others. I am pleased, however, with the nice pairing of the badge and invitation.
