Lot 439: Vintage matte-finish 13.75 x 10.75 photo of a relaxed Lindbergh standing in a motorboat, his hands in his pockets, flanked by two other men, signed in fountain pen, "Charles A. Lindbergh." Includes a photocopy of a typed letter from Lindbergh, dated September 28, 1937, in part, "The face of the man in the boat with Mrs. Burns is rather indistinct but I believe it is Kusterer who, as you may remember, went in advance of our tour to make the necessary arrangements in regard to landing, programme, etc. Kusterer is the man in the lower right hand corner of the other picture of the out-board motorboat." Slight creasing to corners, trivial silvering to darker areas of image and around signature, some slight discoloration to background, and some slight soiling to right side, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA, as well as reproductions of two of the photographs of Lindbergh which were returned by the aviator to Burns.
