Lot 442: World War I-era fountain pen censorship signature, "G. S. Patton Jr., Capt US," on an off-white 2 x 1.75 slip clipped from the lower corner of an envelope. Irregularly trimmed edges and the ink censorship stamp affecting a portion of the signature, otherwise fine condition. Patton was promoted from lieutenant to captain on May 15, 1917, then promoted to major on January 26, 1918, dating this signature to the eight-month window in between—a significant period near the beginning of American involvement in WWI.
