Customer Question

I recently found this old, oval shaped paper piece that has a picture of Harry Truman on it and the dates 1945-1953. At the top of the oval there is a tab sticking out of it with three tiny holes. I would like to find out what it is, how old it is and what it's worth? Thank you for your help.

Is there a particular reason why you are referring me to a new expert?

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Appraisers are typically qualified in specific areas--Doris is not usually an art or ephemera expert.

I'm researching this for you, and will get back to you shortly.

Are you going to be able to find the answers to my questions, or are you passing thrm on to someone else?
Expert:  Appraiser JM replied 10 months ago.

I've been trying to find out. All I can tell you at this point is that the shape, and the holes, is because this used to have a frame around it.

But that's all I'm coming up with. I'm not sure if it was part of a brooch/pin, or a larger piece with multiple presidents. My databases are all coming up with a blank.

So I'm going to opt out as well, and hopefully yet a third appraiser will know more.
