    Franklin Delano Roosevelt -- Signed with his Wartime Title as Commander in Chief! A bold signature with his addition of "C in C" on the bottom portion of light green, White House Executive Mansion stationery, 7" x 4" overall. A superior specimen, light wrinkle along top, bold. Accompanied by an original, vintage Office of War Information photograph (detailed legend printed on verso): "President Roosevelt eats from an army mess kit on the field in French Morocco..." He is pictured with Generals Patton, Clark, and Harry Hopkins. Provenance: directly from the estate of Grace Tully, Roosevelt's personal secretary throughout the War. Examples that include his military appellation are extremely rare and traditionally found on just official government correspondence. This specimen is particularly nice. Two items together. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
