Trading Post

Readers who would be willing to donate old Prohibition Party publications and other artifacts to a library, a museum, or an independent researcher are invited to list their materials in the "Trading Post."  There is no charge for this service.  Please send your name, your address, and a brief description of what you are offering to the Editor of this website. 
    This is not a buy-and-sell listing, please, and it is not an appraisal service.  If you want to sell something or want an estimate of its value, you should consult one of the political memorabilia dealers who advertizes with the American Political Items Collectors (see:  apic.us).
