Item details

A 1925 Nursing Certificate for Dorothy Fox and a smaller 1930 card size note that certifies she upgraded her skills to meet the requirements of an amendment to the law in 1929. The one pictured is for Gertrude Fox. It sold. I also had Dorothy's High School Diploma from 1924, at the time of listing. These are from the South Dakota State Nurses Examining Board, Rapid City, South Dakota.

Pretty unusual at the time. Would be beautiful framed. Perfect as part of a collection, as a prop or as part of a mixed media art project.k

Size: About 14" wide and 11" high.

Condition: Dorothy's has a bent corner and they both have official certification on the back, sort of like a notary would do. Some paper yellowing as you would expect, but in remarkably good condition.

I will refund shipping if in excess of cost. This will be shipped in a tube but it is light.

International buyers please convo me for shipping costs.

I will ship within three business days, if not sooner. Sometimes I will be away from products for a time but will let you know on the shop page when this occurs. Things like trips to see our Grandkids would affect shipping. Please note that I calculate postage for the farthest USA distance. I will refund excess shipping if you live closer.

If you are an International buyer please let me know right away so I can get the exact shipping fee. On some items I have used the Flat Rate charges for shipping to Canada and Every Where Else. I know these are high and, at least in some cases, can probably get these down. If so, I will send a refund through PayPal.

I will be happy to combine shipping where ever possible. I am not responsible for damage during shipping, but I always pay for insurance for the value of the item. I get good feedback on shipping and packaging. :)

I re-use shipping materials as much as I believe is reasonable and still insure the safe arrival of your item. With linens I am particularly concerned about moisture, so there will always be some plastic involved. Fragile items will be double boxed and the delicate linens will always come in a sturdy box, not a padded envelope. I try to use vintage things for the internal wrapping, part of the charm of buying vintage I think. It does not add to your shipping cost, because I get it for next to nothing. :)

If I know the item is a gift, it will be beautifully packaged as you would expect any gift to be!


Payment is accepted through PayPal and with the Etsy direct payment system. Payment is expected upon purchase, but if somehow that does not work for you, convo me and we'll work it out. Washington residents will be charged retail sales tax. I am happy to put items on reserve for two days.

Returns & exchanges

I work really hard at accurate descriptions so refunds are only offered if I have unintentionally grossly misrepresented something. Please remember these are vintage, gently used or well loved, items. I will only consider a refund or exchange if you contact me within 48 hours of receipt of the item.
