Admiral George Dewey, General William Shafter, Admiral William Sampson, General Nelson Miles and Admiral Winfield Scott Schley.

The Calendar is titled "Eureka Calendar 1899" and may have some advertising text on the reverse but it has been beautifully matted and framed for display and we cannot see the back surface (overall size of framed display is 14 3/4" by 18 3/4"). The Calendar is printed in beautiful chromolithography on a multi-layered, embossed card stock. At the center is a portrait of President William McKinley with roses below and flanked by American Flags. the background card is further decorated with elaborate floral designs. Behind the central image of McKinley are mounted 6 mechanical "arms" that form a fan when opened. Each arm features a portrait of one of the Heroes of the Spanish American War as well as calendars for two months. The portraits are surrounded by elaborate, lattice like fretwork and each portrait carries a printed, facsimile signature of the military figure pictured.


This original 1899 Spanish American War Mechanical Calendar displays beautifully as framed but does have some condition issues. There is some scattered light soiling and a few spots of light water staining (confined to the edges of the Card backing. There is some shipping at the corners and a 1" tear at the center of the bottom edge. There is also some light bends to a few of the elements. The cut out work surrounding the portraits and there is also some other minor wear to other die cut areas. As stated above the Calendar does display beautifully as framed.

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee.
