    Mohandas K. Gandhi Signed Check, 1911 A scarce and desirable piece, a check, measuring 7.75" x 3.5", drawn on The Natal Bank Limited of Pretoria, South Africa dated October 4, 1911 for the amount of [British pound sign] 9 for "Sanitary charges." In other words, he is paying the sewer tax. Gandhi has signed his name at the lower right, "M K Gandhi." The body of the check has been written in another hand. Apparently the amount of the check was incorrect as a note on the verso reads: "Endorsement Cancelled fresh Cheque received 16 10/11..." Hand cancellation does little to take away from Gandhi's crisp and clean signature. Miniscule loss at bottom left, usual folds, light paperclip stain at top left otherwise quite bright and clean. A fine addition to any comprehensive check collection. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
