150th Anniversary Medallion - Diameter 2.5"

The LIRR sold them to employees.  I believe the price was $25.00. Of course, lots were given away to VIPs, etc.

A photograph (credit: Newsday) of the railroad's late historian Vincent Seyfried. Many of us were friends with Vincent over the years and sadly only a handful of us attended his funeral in 2012. Of especial interest is the attached "official" copy of a letter to Vincent back in 1984 when former LIRR president Robin Wilson named him Historian Emeritus, a title (with lifetime white pass) that Vincent held until his death.  Archive: Richard Make
