29th President. The Riggs National Bank check signed “Warren G. Harding” AS PRESIDENT, April 8, 1921, 8.5×3, payable to Cooper’s Art Shop in type for $2.50.
In fine condition, folds.
We can only find one other example of a similar personal check signed by Harding while in office. This is an extremely RARE format for Harding.
Cooper’s Art Shop was located down the block from the White House at 1324 G. Street. Harding was most likely decorating his new home as he had just assumed office one month earlier.
