Description

    Eugene V. Debs Pair of Checks Signed "Eugene V. Debs." The first check measures 6.25" x 2.75", West Town State Bank, Chicago, Illinois, September 19th, 1923. The check is made out to Eugene V. Debs for $1000, from Otto Branstetter. Debs endorses the back of the check. The second check measures 6.25" x 2.75", West Town State Bank, Chicago, Illinois, October 31st, 1923. The check is made out to Eugene V. Debs for $500, from Otto Branstetter. Debs endorses the back of the check. Debs was a prominent figure of the Socialist Party of America, and ran for president five times on the Socialist ticket; the final time he ran from prison.
    The checks are both in very fine condition; only the cancellation stamps mar the condition of these fine items. They do go over the signature in a few places but do not affect their legibility and crispness. From the Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
