    Signed by Franklin Sr. and Jr., Eleanor, and others.

    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Dated Signature with Eleanor and Others.
    -July 7, 1929. One page. 5 x 5".
    -Light edge soiling, else very fine.

    Signed "Franklin D. Roosevelt, at Syracuse July 7, 1929", followed by "Eleanor Roosevelt", "Ross I. McIntire" (FDR's physician) and "Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr. Feb. 10, 1966, Syracuse, N.Y.". The verso is signed by Indiana Senator and Presidential Candidate Birch Bayh. Surely a unique assemblage of autographs spanning a thirty-seven year period on the same piece of paper!

    A very interesting, one of a kind set of autographs on one 5 x 5" white paper (framed) - Franklin D. Roosevelt, July 7, 1929, followed by Eleanor Roosevelt, Admiral Ross McIntire (FDR's physician) and Franklin D. Roosevelt, Jr. dated Feb. 10, 1966, Syracuse, N.Y. Of more interest is that on the verso of this sheet is the signature of Indiana Senator and Presidential Candidate Birch Bayh! Quite a unique piece given the assemblage signing over a thirty seven year period on the same piece of paper!

    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.
