Private Stash: Vintage Diploma

This Private Stash is from my husband’s collection. I spotted this high school graduation diploma at a local Goodwill a few weeks ago. It is so hard to find things like this at thrift stores now a days, not that it can’t be done, but for Pete’s sake, what a thrill! I snatched it up quickly when I saw it was priced at $3.99.

1934 diploma

This document was given out to John Elias Jones in 1934 as he graduated from East High School in Cleveland, Ohio. Diplomas used to be large, this one measures 13″ by 17″. It would have been rolled and held together by a ribbon, most likely the ribbon used in this frame.


I just love that the ribbon was saved all those years ago!

Who would have thought that a high school diploma would be a work of art. This snag will be hung on my husband’s office wall.
