    Description

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt Signed Check as Governor of New York Partly-printed document signed, "Franklin D. Roosevelt" as governor of New York, a check, measuring 9" x 3.6", dated Albany, March 18, 1930. An unusual and interesting check drawn on the account of the Adjutant General's Office at the Union Trust Company to Marcella Ryan in the amount of $418.80 "to Pay Refund, Spanish War." Punch cancellation well clear of signature, light soiling and small loss at bottom right, otherwise very bright with a distinct signature. An intriguing financial renumeration from a war that concluded thirty-two years earlier... the same conflict that put F.D.R.'s distant cousin on the path to becoming president. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
