    Description

    Charles Lindbergh and Anne Morrow Lindbergh Signed Short Snorter With Lindbergh Ribbon, Coin, Pin, and Medallion. Great collection of Lindbergh pieces featuring a three-bill (US Silver Certificates) short snorter signed by Lindbergh and his wife. Each bill measures 6" x 2.75", with some staining at ends resulting from cello tape. The snorter contains approximately 60 signatures, with some signers including their rank of company association. The signatures likely date from World War II, when the practice of signing snorters was most popular.

    Accompanied by a multi-colored ribbon commemorating Lindbergh's "First Non-Stop Airplane Flight, New York to Paris, May 20-21, 1927." The lot also includes a mass-produced "Lucky Lindbergh Coin," a broach/pin with an image of the great flyer, and a campaign-style ribbon with hanging medallion issued to "Committee - Col. Lindbergh Reception, Buffalo, N.Y. July 29th, 1927." Currency is toned with cello tape stains at ends. Other items show light to moderate wear.
