Hi Thank you no there was nothing showing here all it said was "Found this old stuff in a box whats the worth ?" Thank you for the photos. Now I can see what you have. Thank you please allow me time to research this and post back here upon completion. These are rare to find and the employee card was of a woman that worked at a food booth. Thank you

Hello, thank you for your patience the key has a value of 30-45.00. These were sold to tourists attending the fair. A good place to sell this is= rubylane.com or etsy.com where collectors look first for the finer pieces to buy. World Fair collectible items are collected from all over the world. There are groups that meet and talk about all things worlds fair. It has a huge following as it was a major event at one time to attend and be a part of.

The employee card is in excellent condition and is from a woman who worked for Czechoslovak Restaurant. The value on the employee card is 75.00 and is in perfect condition for the age.

The Restaurant /Bar is still in business today:

Restaurant/bar with a beer garden that started as a meeting place for Czechs and Slovaks after WWII.
