Description

    Jacqueline Kennedy Typed Letter Signed. One page, 6" x 9", Washington, November 15, 1961, on White House letterhead. This unusual letter was written to William Lipscomb of the Riggs National Bank on Pennsylvania Avenue concerning a request by Mrs. Kennedy. In part: "This is to request that, effective immediately, an account be opened with The Riggs National Bank under the name of 'Mary B. Gallagher - Special'. This account will actually consist of funds belonging to me and my husband, with Mary Gallagher serving as agent. . . ."

    Mary Barelli Gallagher was Mrs. Kennedy's personal secretary during the White House years. In 1969, she published her best-selling memoir, My Life with Jacqueline Kennedy. For most of its 170-year history, Riggs National Bank was one of the largest banks in Washington, D.C., serving many notable individuals, including twenty-two presidents. In 2005, Riggs merged with PNC Bank and retired its name. Very fine. From the John K. Lattimer Collection.

    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.
