Eisenhower 1955 Chirstmas gift card

Eisenhower small 1955 gift card that accompanied a limited number of Christmas gift prints to friends and White House staff. The 4 x 3.25 card by Hallmark carries a gold and blue presidential seal. When opened there is an unsigned pre-printed message from the Eisenhowers. These are quite scarcer than the larger Christmas cards send in 1955. Approximately 1,300 prints of a painting by Ike along with these cards were prepared. It seems that many recipients hung on to prints but discarded the small cards. [#5297]
