    Description

    Franklin D. Roosevelt Signed "Short Snorter" From the Historic Teheran Conference. Signature "Franklin D. Roosevelt" on a series 1935 one dollar silver certificate. 6" x 2.75". This short snorter was likely signed en route to the conference by Roosevelt and several of his aides including Harry Hopkins, Rear Admiral Wilson Brown, Major General E. M. Watson, Dr. Ross McIntire, Admiral William Leahy, and several other military men. The verso of the bill bears the heading "Special Mission 22/11/43".

    The Teheran Conference was the first WWII meeting of the "Big Three" countries - Britain, the Soviet Union and the United States. It was at this conference that the leading powers planned the final strategy for defeating Nazi Germany and her allies. The conference was held November 28 to December 1, 1943 and was attended by Churchill, Stalin, and Roosevelt and their combined staffs. Roosevelt has signed his full signature about two thirds of the way down the bill. With fold creases, signatures slightly faded, else very good.
