Collectors often ask which one of these are the
"official" or "original" PT-109 gift given out by JFK.
Actually they all are. Throughout the 1960 campaign and up until 1963
various versions of the PT-109 were ordered to be given by President
Kennedy. The versions with the year '60 on them were made to be given
out during the actual campaign. He would hand them out at campaign
appearances as well as they were given to big-time contributors.
Sometimes the family would pay for them and other times the Democratic
National Committee resulting in various versions created. After
becoming President the 60 was dropped and just the name "Kennedy" or "109"
were put on them and handed out by President Kennedy in the Oval Office and
again at personal appearances by him. Even on Nov. 22, 1963 he handed
out the little PT-109's in Fort Worth just before his assassination.
These are getting more and more difficult to locate.
