Original JFK Inaugural Keepsake As Milestone Nears

This year will mark the 50th anniversary of the death of John F. Kennedy.
While doing a bit of spring cleaning, we found this pennant from the 1961 Inauguration of JFK.
It's a bit faded What appears as a blue/gray was actually deep blue) but it is an authentic original. Look at those red felt streamers on the end. They've mostly kept their color.
We checked with an appraiser and found that it is worth about $12.
That seems to be what it will garner on the open market.
Obviously, we have no intention of selling it.
It takes up very little room and we continue to treasure it.
