Dear Mike - What an interesting piece of history! Let me tell you a little about it. In May of 1961 delegates from the Mayors of America Unity Program presented a “Declaration of Unity” to then president, John F. Kennedy. The declaration which was presented was signed by 1200 mayors (https://www.jfklibrary.org/Asset-Viewer/Archives/JFKPOF-102-005.aspx). Your piece likely was presented to each of the 1200 mayors who signed the document given to Kennedy. Edward G. Koenig was Mayor Bordentown, NJ and as an individual, quite an accomplished gentleman (http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/news-press/obituary.aspx?n=g-edward-koenig&pid=18665927). While the proclamation commemorates a moment connected to Kennedy, because it isn’t signed by Kennedy this piece has an auction value of between $50 - $60.

Cheers,

Erin-Marie
