Lot 39: Choice 2.25 x 4 carte-de-visite portrait of Johnson in a near-profile pose, boldly signed on the reverse in black ink, "Andrew Johnson, Feb. 14th 1869." In fine condition. Johnson autographs are generally uncommon due to his injured hand, but signed photos are especially scarce—particularly those signed as president. At the time he signed this, President Johnson was less than three weeks away from leaving the White House in favor of U. S. Grant. Given its rarity and superior condition, this is a paramount example of the utmost desirability.
