WWI Handkerchief Military Memorabilia Collectible Silk Hanky 1910's era

From WWI, I have a silk "Forget Me Not" military memorabilia handkerchief.

"e pluribus unum"
"When the Golden Sun is sinking,
And your mind from troubles free,
While of others You are thinking
Will You sometimes think of me?"

Vintage handkerchief a soldier would have left for a sweetheart.

I purchased this hanky from the estate sale of an antique dealer. Her shop had been closed for thirty years and the items put in storage. I had to hand wash all the linens as they had a musty odor.

This handkerchief has a pink patterned border and it measures a large 14 1/4 inches square.

It does have some issues. There are three spots where there are holes in the silk - condition would be rated "fair" at best. I have seen hankies of this type sell for over $100. I would like for this one to go to a home where it will be appreciated. I would just like to cover my costs and then pass this 100 year old piece of history on to a collector where it will be coveted.
