Description

    Charles Lindbergh Typed Letter Signed. One page, 8.5" x 11", New York City, July 11, 1930, on Lindbergh's personal letterhead. Lindbergh responds to Dr. Burton R. Charles of Radium Products Laboratories in Los Angeles regarding the performance of the "electrically heated flying suits." The popular American aviator also offers a suggestion.

    "I am sorry I have been unable to answer your letter sooner. Up to the present time the electrically heated flying suits have functioned perfectly. The rubberized material we decided to use for the outside tears very easily and in constructing any more suits the only suggestion I have to make is that a more rugged material be used."

    Interestingly, the letter was written nineteen days after the birth of Lindbergh's son, Charles, who would later be abducted and murdered. This letter is toned with folds.

    The letter is accompanied by a tapestry (19" x 20") showing Lindbergh standing in front of the Spirit of St. Louis. In the lower margin is woven "Lindbergh." On the verso is woven "Made in France" and "Registered."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
