This week, we will be listing a Wonderful Collection of Historical Memorabilia, including the World Trade Center Archive of WTC First Responder Vito Messana! This is a Great, Very Rare World Trade Center building key that was actually in the building. This wonderful Old piece has a Great look, is. An Original, Authentic Piece of American History and Very Rare to Find.
This comes from the Personal Collection of WTC First Responder Vito Messana. Messana, a Teamster Boss from Long Island, volunteered at The Heap starting on September 11, 2001, and did so each day for the next two weeks. When the Search and Rescue concluded and focus shifted to cleanup, Mr. Messana was asked to stay on, in his capacity as a Teamster Boss, to aid in the overwhelming task.
He did so, and worked at the site for over a year. Above, you can see an Associated Press news photo of Mr. Messena, as well as a New York Post article, in which Vito is quoted.
This will come with a Letter of Provenance from Vito, attesting to these facts. This is in Good, Solid condition, with wear and soiling from a building falling on it.
