    Harry S. Truman Photo Signed as President and inscribed "To President W. V. S. Tubman with high regard..." 8" x 11" sight size in a Sterling silver frame with an engraved Presidential Seal at top, overall 10.25" x 13". William Vacanarat Shadrach Tubman, the descendent of former American slaves who had returned to Africa in the early 19th century, was president of Liberia from 1944 until his death in 1971. Liberia prospered economically during his administration. He was a pro-western stabilizing force in West Africa and often courted by Western politicians as in this present example. One small surface tear in the photo, some tarnish and light scratching to the frame, and the inscription is a bit light. Overall very good. A very desirable item- a presentation from one nation's president to another's.
