I found a listing for the Heeren Bros. Columbian Shield advertisement archived on Worthpoint.
Wow! What a great find - sorry I missed this one. It sold for a lousy $14.99! I've been calling these "Columbia
Shields" but this clearly states "Columbian Shield", which makes more sense anyway, since these were made for the Columbian
Exposition. Thanks, Julia! -Editor
