Lot 46: Scarce and impressive ink signature as president, "James A. Garfield, April 13, 1881," on an off-white 4.5 x 2.25 slip. Handsomely double-matted and framed with an engraved portrait to an overall size of 11 x 15. In fine condition, with a trivial brush to the last letter. Garfield was afforded only four months to sign autographs during his presidency as he was shot by assassin Charles Guiteau on July 2, 1881. This unusually large, bold signature dates to just six weeks into Garfield's term and is a superb overall example. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 462 Wednesday, 14th October 2015 Estimate: $3000-4000
