ATTENTION: EL RENO HISTORICAL SOCIETY or anyone interested. EBAY Item # 2643750831, ENDS JULY 5, 2003.
This item is a "Limited Edition", porcelain dish made in Dresden, Germany for sale by the Minton Jewelry Co., El Reno, Oklahoma, as marked on the back. It depicts a throng of people, from the estimated 160,000 who were present for the drawing, lined up to register.
Even though I am an El Reno native, I have no personal interest in the sale of this item. I just saw it advertised and thought the Historical Society or someone of that grouping should have it for their museum.
It is now over 100 years old - a true antique. I would think very few were sold in that time when people saved their money, hoping to buy land.
