Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage fountain pen signature on a 1.25 x 3.25-inch tan card, acquired in the 1930s. In very good condition and ideal for matting. Note that the image of the star shown alongside the scan of the autograph here is not actually included with the signed item. While occasionally cast as benevolent police officials or army officers, C.
