    U.S. Marine Corps Fighter Ace Pappy Boyington -- Nine Document Signed Checks (1912-1988) Known best as the leader of the "Black Sheep Squadron" (Marine Fighting Squadron #214) in the Solomons, "Pappy Boyington" was portrayed by Robert Conrad on the popular television show in the 1970s. The real Boyington won the Congressional Medal of Honor in World War II, when as a Marine pilot he was credited with downing 28 Japanese aircraft. He was shot down in January 1944 and spent the rest of the war as a Japanese prisoner. Here is a superb collection of nine checks drawn on his personal account from the 1980s and boldly signed in felt tip, Gregory Boyington. Appropriately, most of these checks have a picture of a fighter plane in the background. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
