    Description

    Franklin D. Roosevelt: Superlative Tire Cover. 29" tar-coated or waterproofed canvas tire cover with large portrait of FDR, inscribed: "Franklin D. Roosevelt President. A Big Man for a Big Job". Obviously issued in 1932 and, to the best of our knowledge, one of only two examples known. There is overall crazing and some minor abrasions but, for all intents and purposes, it is fully intact and extremely well-preserved. A graphic relic of the 1930's. This is something you might have seen while standing on the bread line or unemployment office in 1932. After the election, it was, hopefully, "Happy Days Are Here Again!" From the Scott W. Dolson Collection.
