Lot 25: Very desirable Executive Mansion card, boldly signed in black ink, "William McKinley." A few insignificant marks and nicks to the surface, and a toning line, otherwise fine condition. After McKinley's assassination when Roosevelt succeeded him in office, he had the remaining Executive Mansion stationery printed with black borders in McKinley's memory, and after a month-long morning period had new cards and stationery printed with the words 'White House,' replacing 'Executive Mansion.'
