Gorgeous 14-karat gold pocket hair comb belonging to Calvin Coolidge, measuring 6.75″ unfolded and containing approximately one ounce of 14-karat gold, with front plate engraved with his monogram, "C. C." Included with the comb is a typed letter from Jerrold L. Aspengren, the executive director of the Children's Aid and Family Service of Hampshire County, addressed to John Coolidge, the first son of Calvin and Grace Coolidge, dated May 1983, which reads, in part: "First of all, this is not a request for money! We've come up with a much more creative way to supplement our finding sources—a Memorabilia Auction! Our plan is to auction off memorabilia from celebrities like yourself as a fund-raiser for our agency…Won't you reach out to those in need and send us some item for our auction. Something autographed, possibly a small personal item that would provide both recognition for you and some income for the work of our agency." Coolidge responds with a brief handwritten note at the close of the letter: "Here is a comb belonging to my father, President Calvin Coolidge. John Coolidge, 6/14/83." In fine condition. Accompanied by a copy of a newspaper article detailing the results of the charity auction.
