Small Packard Dealer Items and Sales Awards

Was going thru various items of my Dad's from when he worked at the family Packard dealership (Packard Hempstead in Hempstead, LI, NY; and Warta Motors (Studebaker/Packard/Mercedes/Auto Union) in Merrick, LI, NY. Thought there might be some who would like to see pictures of the Packard items.

1) First three pictures -- a Packard ring with a red stone and a diamond, with my Dad's name engraved on the inside. I assume this was some type of sales award. Sure would like to know what level of sales this was for, if it was a sales award.

2) Fourth picture -- the back plate from a Benrus watch, engraved with "AWARDED FOR OUTSTANDING SALES ACHEIVEMENT PACKARD-CLIPPER DIVISION 1955". Apparently the watch must have broke, and only the back plate was saved (unfortunately).

3) Fifth and sixth picture -- key blank marked "Golden Anniversary Packard".

4) Seventh picture -- Packard crest tie pin.

5) Eighth picture -- Packard "V" tie pin.

Any comments on these would be greatly welcomed and appreciated!

6) Ninth picture -- a Packard crest that was apparently attached to something, not sure what.

You are a very lucky guy! Your dad left you some nice items.

A ring very similar to yours sold at auction this past weekend for $1,900 and auction fees brought the total price to $2,240.

A number of years ago I found this unique item at a swap meet. I have often wondered how many others exist in collections.

Sorry, but in my earlier post I said the ring sold for $1,900 before fees. I confused that with another ring that sold. Your version sold for $1,600, or $1,890 after fees.

Here is more information for only the Packard items from the sale last weekend https://www.proxibid.com/Check-the-Oil ... chloc=true&ipp=100&sort=4

Check out the going rates for some of these items. Frankly some of the items were sold at lower prices than I thought. Look at Lot # 186 – a bronze paper weight that was cast circa 1919. Normally these things sell for about $500, but the auctioneer never mentioned the description on the reverse: J.G. Vincent. I know who bought the paper weight and it is being donated to the museum at the Packard Proving Grounds.

The same sponsor of this auction is holding 4 more auctions in the next 3 months.

RogerDetroit, thank you for the info and the link. Lots of nice Packard items in that auction, and I'm surprised at how reasonable some of them went for.

As for my Dad's ring, he would have received that from Packard in the 1950s, so I wonder about the ring in the auction being listed as from the 1930's.

This letter explains the program I remember reading it before and one salesman I knew who was owner of local dealership owned by two brothers . The dealer ship later sold Studebakers was a family owned and run business

To r1lark,
Like you I was skeptical of the description of the second ring as being from the 1930s as it appears nothing lilke the first ring. And the first ring has the look of a pre-war ring.

But the link provided by acolds definatively shows your ring was a post-war design - at least 1951. That PDF scan is a great find, sory I missed it when it was originally posted. Thanks.

RogerDetroit and acolds, thank you for your comments. And acolds, thanks for providing the .pdf on the Master Salesmen program!

I'll have to do some searching on this site to see what else I can find. I keep forgetting that this site is so much more than just a forum!

By the way, here is one other thing I have of my Dad's. I had posted it a while back, but some may not have seen it - a pen holder and clock set, pics below.
