First Lady autographs

In his "Collecting Autographs and Manuscripts" (1961, revised 1970 adding Johnson & Nixon)), autograph pioneer Charles Hamilton writes "A few of the First Ladies rank among the most elusive of American autographs. Martha Jefferson, for instance ...Even harder to find, if such is possible, are autographs of Eliza Monroe and Hannah Van Buren ... Rare, also, are the autographs of Caroline Fillmore, Ida McKinley, Ellen Arthur, Rachel Jackson, and Anna Harrison..."The wives of Jefferson, Van…See More

Mamie Doud Eisenhower had an Autopen

The cabin was built according to Secret Service security guidelines, and, during his presidency, was…See More

Shirley Temple & Grace Kelly

Posted on February 17, 2014 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

Both Shirley Temple and Grace Kelly signed autographs through the mail after their movie careers.

22-year-old Shirley Temple married Charles Black in 1950 and signed "Shirley Temple Black" if you sent her a movie still.

26-year-old Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956 and signed "Grace de Monaco" on photographs picturing her as Princess.

BUT if you sent her a movie still or anything related to her movie career, she would sign "Grace Kelly" because she…

It was a CNN report on Collecting. I was interviewed on Autograph Collecting. It was a very, very short interview on a short segment but it was CNN, my book "Autograph Collecting" was publicized, and it was shown worldwide!

Hello Herman,

I was wondering if you'd consider giving me your opinion on this purported JFK inscription I recently posted to the group. I'd appreciate any insights you could offer. Thanks much, Rick H.

Thank you for your time.

Mr. Darvick,

I was given your name as someone to ask about the authenticity of a JFK signature that I have. If you could let me know what you think, I'd be very grateful. thanks so much for your time.

Mr. Darvick,

The certificate seemed to be glued on so we did not want to tear it up, so we took a clean picture of it and I sent it to you via your email.  My email is tio88609@gmail.com, if you don;t get the email let me know.

thanks

At 5:34pm on July 13, 2016, Rick Robisch said…

Mr. Darvick,

Thank you so much on your quick reply, I will work on getting a scan of the certificate and will send to your email.  Might take a couple days .

Mr. Darvick,

I was wondering if you could give me some input on a possible Marc Chagall lithograph that has your name on the certificate of authenticity.  I have attached the lithograph, it is titled "The Orchard" but I believe in my research it is called "Snaring Birds" so a bit confused on that.  I was wondering if you could tell by the pictures if it is authentic or not and what general value it might have.  The size of lithography is 12 by 18.

Thanks so much

Rick Robisch
