    These were also in that little box rescued from the trash today. There's also a photo from the expo and even the person's rail ticket to get there. I've never seen these particular medals before. I wonder if they are rare or have any value? the ticket? maybe all together? regardless, this little box has been a real cool peek at bay area history.

      What a find! WHat you have is souvenirs from San Francisco's 1915 Pan Pacific Worlds Fair. Held in what is now the Marina district, the centerpiece of the Fair was the illuminated Tower of Jewels, and the Palace of Fine Arts, which still stands in SF.
      You have tickets, as well as admission badges for opening and closing day. Probably worth over $100--but keep it as a great souvenir!!
