Miscellaneous Items

and Other Works:

 (Above) Authentic "Lincoln Vault Oak" piece with original Oak tree drawing and design for IOS Lifetime Service Award. These 8"X10" plaques were given out by the International Oak Society once a year for five years.

The wood used to make the plaque was from an oak tree, planted above Lincoln's grave site in Springfield, Illinois. The oak was cut down in the early 2000's and

samples were legally obtained for these awards.
