President Kennedy’s personally-owned and -used wooden cigar box, measuring 8 x 4.5 x 2.5, featuring a colorful presidential seal emblem inlaid in the top and an engraved plaque on the front, reading: “John F. Kennedy, My Cigars, 1962.” The high quality box is constructed with dovetail-style joints and lined in cedar. Two Flor Extra Fina cigars remain inside. Includes a letter of provenance on a White House card from Toi Bachelder, a White House secretary. In part: “The wooden box…was owned & used by John F. Kennedy and is so indicated by a silver plaque…This box came from the President’s upstairs White House quarters and came to me in late November 1963 via JFK’s close aide Ted Sorenson, whom I served as a secretary.” An impressive JFK relic perfect for display.
