Here is a very nice item, one that falls into multiple categories. This is a commendation letter and certificate issued to a faithful employee. The letter is written on Consolidated Oil Corporation’s letterhead dated September 15, and is actually hand-signed by the president at that time. I cannot identify the handwritten signature, but it appears to be Priechim. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to confirm the actual name. The letter measures slightly under the now-standard of 8 1/2″ by 11″.
The certificate, however, is quite legible, and has great graphics on it, including a gasoline truck from about the twenties. The signature is that of the actual President of Sinclair Oil, Harry Sinclair, but it is a “boilerplate”. However, the rest of the certificate is for an actual person, Frank F. Wilson, for 5 years loyal service. It measures 13 1/2″ long, by 9″.
Both items are safely coiled within a 10″ by 1 3/4″ mailing tube. This tube is the original tube sent to Frank from Consolidated Oil, and has a 12 cent stamp on it. This whole item will be securely covered by a plastic sleeve for further protection. Check my photos for full descriptions of this great item. If you need more pix, just let me know. I can always provide something special.
