    Description

    14 Carat Gold Cartier Ballpoint Pen Used by Eisenhower Sgt. John Moaney dedicated twenty-seven years of his life to the service of Dwight David Eisenhower, beginning with Ike's time as a General during World War II, continuing through his years at the White House, and ending with Ike's death in 1969. Shortly before Eisenhower's passing, he presented this 14 carat gold Cartier ballpoint pen to Moaney as a gift. An engraved White House card signed by Moaney's widow (who also served as a cook for the Eisenhowers) recounts the pen. A White House card with the Presidential Eagle embossed in gold, and "The President" embossed in black also accompanies the pen. Appropriate historical provenance from the Moaneys accompanies this most personal item.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
