Burger Chef was a fast-food restaurant chain that began operating in 1954 in Indianapolis, Indiana. It expanded throughout the United States, and, at its peak
in 1973, had 1,050 locations. The chain featured several signature items, such
as the Big Shef and Super Shef hamburgers.

In 1982, the General Foods Corporation, then-owners of the Burger Chef name trademark, divested itself of the restaurant chain, gradually selling to the owners
of Hardee’s. The final restaurant to carry the Burger Chef name closed in 1996.

The written oath used by Reagan to practice for his swearing-in ceremony in 1981.

(FoxNews) – Even Ronald Reagan needed most of January to begin signing the
correct year, and the proof is in a one-of-a-kind document inscribed by the
Gipper and given to a trusted aide the day the 40th president took the oath
of office. 

After giving the 41-word oath to Chief Justice Warren Burger on Jan. 20, 1981,
Reagan inscribed and dated the printed version he’d used for practice for a
trusted aide.

The document is now up for sale for $62,500, according to rare documents
dealer Nathan Raab, whose Philadelphia-area company obtained the item
from an unnamed seller.
