    Ronald Reagan Bank Counter Check Accomplished and Signed. One page, approximately 8" x 3.5", Furnace Creek CA, March 13, 1948. Engrossed to the "Furnace Creek Inn" in the amount of $133.50 for one week's stay ("Hotel Bill 3/7-3/13"). Located in Death Valley, the luxurious Inn was a favorite retreat for Hollywood stars seeking respite. Reagan would return to the area in the mid 60s as host for the television anthology "Death Valley Days".

    Drawn against his account with the Bank of America on Sunset and Clark in Hollywood, Reagan has added his home address in Beverly Hills where indicated at the bottom of the check. Check is lightly age toned, with a small portion of the left edge missing. Large red crayon "B" cancellation on front; red ink cancellation stamps and hole-punch cancellation stamp on verso. Fine condition.

    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.
