RR Auction: Fine Autographs and Artifacts

Auction Details

RR Auction's September Fine Autographs and Artifacts sale is led by a wealth of significant documents associated with American finance—George Washington extends the financial system to the newly admitted North Carolina, Chief Justice John Marshall opines on the Bank of the United States, and President Lincoln allows cotton trade between North and South. Other pieces of significance include locks of George and Marsha Washington's hair, autographs of several rare signers of the Declaration of Independence, a scarce Christy Mathewson check, and several remarkable letters and photographs. RR Auction is a globally recognized and trusted auction house specializing in historical autographs and artifacts. Join us as we make history selling history in September 2021.
