ENVELOPE WITH GOLD, A PIECE OF GUZMAN BLANCO HISTORY
good morning lovers of gold and silver in #hive again here showing a somewhat different collector's item this time since it may not have much gold in it but as a piece of history it is worth it
Today I show you one of my favorite pieces, an envelope that belonged to President Guzmán Blanco and at the end of the 1800s, it was addressed to a politician, businessman and banker, founder of the Bank of Venezuela, Manuel Antonio Matos.
it does not contain the letter itself but the envelope is only something luxurious, it has the monogram of the president of that time G B with relief work and gold on it, of course I have not done the test because in this case it would damage the piece, but knowing the history of the president known as the one who Frenchified Caracas, if he could do something luxurious and expensive, he would do it
this piece is changed in 2019 if I remember correctly, I changed it to a collector for a toy police car that he was interested in and I was interested in the envelope, this is one of my favorite pieces really
I can't say if this is the handwriting of guzman blanco but this is a very personal and not very common envelope practically you won't see any on the internet at the moment except for the one I'm showing today
I hope you like this post of this beautiful piece that is a bit out of the daily routine of what I have been posting but still falls within the characteristics of the community, soon I will show you more pieces of my collection, I wish you all a good day
