PARKER'S ENGRAVED FLASHLIGHT 1974
 


This black KEL-LITE Flashlight, measuring 19 3/4” in length was given to Colonel Tom Parker as a gift in 1974. The inscription near the head of the flashlight reads as follows: "TO THE COLONEL WITH RESPECT FROM THE CHIEF JAN. 74”. Mr. Bonja acquired this piece from the Colonel as one of his impromptu silent auctions which he held in his office at MGM Studios in Culver City , California . The Colonel would often receive gifts from various sources over his career and would hold an auction once or twice a year to make room for future gifts. The usual partsipants in the auction were Tom Diskin, George Parkhill, Jim O'Brien and Ed Bonja. Items included in these auctions would range from television sets and radios to bathroom scales- and, of course, this flashlight. On this particular occasion, Mr. Bonja put in his written bid of $.25 for this item, thinking that he would have no need for such a large flashlight. When all bids had been turned in, the Colonel announced that this item would go to the lowest bidder, and Mr. Bonja's bid of $.25 was just that. It has been in his possession since that auction in 1975 until I purchased this piece. It is displayed in Plexiglas with descriptive plaque.

PRICE:  $2,000 - SOLD
