#CH265 - Mickey Mouse Rabbit Toy
Vintage 10 1/2" long cellophane header bag with six brightly colored 1 3/4" tall hard plastic rabbits on a string with beads in between them. There is a brass colored ring on each end so you could hold it with two hands and swing the rabbits around. Click the image to see the larger picture with the rabbits. Mickey Mouse and family are featured on the amazing header. They are surprisingly well made, but should never be used as they are the old brittle hard plastic that they outlawed for kids many years ago. They are from the 1950s and are unused old store stock in amazing condition. Unusual and uncommon item.

#CIR005 - James M. Cole Circus General Admission Ticket for Lamar, CO Show
Vintage 4 7/8" wide general admission ticket to the Cole Circus Show. They are marked "Lamar, CO" "Sunday, May 17, 1959" "Auspices Coachman's Club". This was for admission to the Main tent. There are two types. they look the same, except one says "Child 50¢" and the other "Adult $1.00". The child version is yellow. You can pick your preference from the pull down menu. These are paper tickets that would be passed out at stores in advance when the circus was coming. The stores would sell them and split the take with the circus when they got there.

These came from a fellow whose job it was to run ahead of the circus to prime the town they were going to. He would put up signs in yards in exchange for tickets. Give tickets to the local stores to sell, and take proofs to the local newspapers. He did this from about 1958 till 1962 for several circuses. This paper and a lot of other stuff we bought came from leftovers in his garage. The Cole Circus was one of the majors. It was equal to Ringling Brothers in the 1930s. When TV came around in the 1950s and 60s, many of these circuses had trouble. People got glued to the TV. The New Cole Brothers Circus was formed in the 1980s and it is still around today.

#BEADSC0249 - Lead Deer Charm with Loop
Vintage 3/4" wide lead deer charm from the 1950s. Lead charms are very rare as lead bends and breaks easily.

In all these years these are the only examples of lead charms we have ever found! At first I thought they were pot metal, but the legs can be bent!
