    Annie Oakley 1926 Signed Check to Husband Frank Bulter A rare and fine association piece, a check, filled out entirely in her hand paying her husband, Frank Butler, $8.00 for a hunting trunk. The check, measuring 6.1" x 2.8", is drawn on the National Newark & Essex Banking Company, and is dated June 12, 1926. Oakley signs at the lower right, "Annie Oakley Butler." On the verso she adds a note, "For hunting trunk I bought from Mr Butler." Butler endorses the check in pencil, "Frank E. Butler." It is also endorsed by one "Mrs Isabella Peters," presumably the original owner of the trunk. Cancellation punches affect a few words in the payee line well clear of Oakley's signature. Despite some very minor soiling, the check is bright and crisp and perfect for display! Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
