Franklin D. Roosevelt Check Signed as President – Just Weeks Before His Death


Out of stock

Categories: ,


32nd President.  Bank check drawn from the “Guaranty Trust Company of New York”, March 5, 1945, 6.5×2.5, filled out in another hand and signed “Franklin D. Roosevelt” AS PRESIDENT in expected feeble hand as he died just 6 weeks later.  The check is made out to the “Tail-Waggers Club, D.C.” for $1 and represented the membership dues for his beloved dog, Fala.  The check is uncancelled.

A very late-in-life autograph with a fantastic association.

There is a thin line of adhesive at top on back, from previous mounting, light central vertical fold, else near perfect.
