Delicious AND expensive!
Check out (above) this sugar Presidential Seal, which was featured on President John F. Kennedy's birthday in 1962 and is now up for auction!
According Lois Larkin, her husband, the late NYPD detective Patty Larkin, was working security detail the night of Kennedy's birthday party at Madison Square Garden - the very same one at which Marilyn Monroe sang "Happy Birthday" - and when he realized that the decoration was going to be thrown out, he took it home with him!
The piece is now up for auction on November 17th, at the Heritage Auctions in Dallas, and is estimated at being worth over $5,000!
Holy shiz! That is one vintage, patriotic dessert!
Hopefully it can continue to be preserved wherever it ends up!
