It was 1958. Jimmy Hoffa was President. And the Teamsters Union hosted an Eastern Conference.
This money clip is a souvenir from the event. It's made of nickel on brass. The front has a map outline of the Eastern states that participated. The B. of T. C. W. & H. of A. emblem with double horse heads is below. The year ~ 1958 ~ is engraved at the top. The back has the maker's mark with their union stamp.
The money clip measures 1 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches. It shows slight separation which indicates this union brother had a few dollars to spend.
The clip is in used but good condition...still functional. It's a relic from one of the most important groups in America.
