US President John F. Kennedy JFK signed photo autograph RR Auction

We’re known for our selection of incredibly well preserved signed documents and artifacts relating to US Presidents, dating back to American colonial times. From Gen. George Washington, to those who serve in Washington in this century, we have the Rare and Remarkable items from these history-making political figures.

Collector Raleigh DeGeer Amyx entrusted RR Auction to curate his astonishing lifetime collection of US President artifacts in 2014. Some of the incredible resulting sales included:

• Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower’s four-star A-2 leather flight jacket: $93,750
• Franklin D. Roosevelt’s wool cape: $68,750
• Signed book by JFK and Jackie Kennedy, a Christmas gift for JFK Sr.; $30,000
• Abraham Lincoln’s eyeglasses: $30,000
• Harry S. Truman’s Stetson fedora: $22,500

We’re seeking any kind of presidential memorabilia that captures an individual, a historical event, or a time and place with its significance. We’ve had a lot of success with personally owned and worn clothing, jewelry and accessories (presidents and First Ladies), as well as handwritten correspondences of all kinds – RR Auction has extensive success with letters and speech drafts by then-lawyer Abraham Lincoln – and autographed and rare photographs, personal items and other glimpses into the working and private lives of the leaders of the free world. “Road to the White House” campaign memorabilia; First Family ephemera. Pre-American Revolution through 21st century.
