This is the actual passport that Congressman George Hansen used to go to Iran and visit the Hostages! I have his wife's passport also, as they traveled together.

    Hello, a great document. I would love to display the full passport and story at my website passport-collector.com. Please contact me. Thanks. Tom

    I have always lived with the rule, "If I have it it it isn't worth anything and if you have it it is worth a fortune". Further proof.
    I have a voicemail from the United States Department of State wanting to discuss these Iran passports. I returned the call and discovered that some $30-$40 MILLION dollars has been set aside for a museum for the State Department. However, they do not have funds for purchasing items, would I be willing to donate? Say no more...

    @Savoychina1: I do agree with you. Museums always expect you generously donate your collectibles as they never want to pay a decent price for your item but at the other side, as you mentioned, got millions from the government and not to forget entrance fees and merchandise...
    But most worse thing is even if they purchase something from you there is no guarantee that your item will be ever on display. It will most possible go ino their archive and nobody will see it ever. That's sad.
