Humphrey Bogart and Michele Morgan Signed Photo Passage to Marseille

Vintage glossy 10 x 8 Warner Bros.–First National promotional photo for Passage to Marseille, showing Bogart and Michele Morgan in a convertible, signed in purple fountain pen, “Humphrey Bogart,” and signed and inscribed in purple fountain pen, “To Harold, best wishes, Michele Morgan.” In very good to fine condition, with light scattered creases and surface marks, mild edge wear with a few trivial tears, and some light rubbing to finish. Passage to Marseille, a 1944 war film directed by Michael Curtiz, reunited much of the cast of Casablanca, including Claude Rains, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and Helmut Dantine. Michele Morgan had been the original choice for the Casablanca female lead, but the role fell to Ingrid Bergman due to contractual matters. Nevertheless, she found herself starring opposite Bogart in Passage to Marseille two years later. An immensely desirable photo, enhanced by this especially interesting Hollywood association. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.

Abraham Lincoln ANS as President right before assassination

ANS as president boldly signed “A. Lincoln,” one page both sides, 3.25 x 2, April 5, 1865. In full: “Will the Sec. of War please see & hear Gen. Barringer of N. C. & oblige him if you consistently can in seeing some friends.” In fine condition, with some light toning and soiling, and a couple of barely noticeable bends.

The day after Lincoln landed in Richmond with a small group of soldiers and an entourage of freed slaves, he scheduled an interview with Confederate General Barringer, the first general officer captured and taken to the Federal Headquarters at City Point. The two men conversed pleasantly and found common ground in their discovery that the general’s brother, Daniel, had shared a desk with Lincoln while they were both in Congress. Lincoln gave Barringer a note for the Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton, ‘…oblige him if you consistently can in seeing some friends.’ Barringer himself noted in his diary of the occasion, ‘Dined with Brig. Gen. Collis Called to see Mr. Lincoln at Gen. Grant’s H. Qtrs—Pleased with him. His looks, dress & manners have been misrepresented [by the] South. Gave me a card to Mr. Stanton.’

The president’s note proved anything but helpful in light of the assassination nine days after their meeting. Barringer was questioned many times and held until July, long after many of the other prisoners had been released. He finally returned home in August, leaving behind a distinguished war record, having risen from captain to general in only a few years. His regiment, engaged in over 150 actions, was considered one of the finest in the Confederate service. This boldly signed note, written so near the time of his death, is a wonderful exemplar of the compassion and respect President Lincoln was known to extend to all, even his former enemies. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.

John F. Kennedy personally owned and worn navy blue silk neck tie

President Kennedy’s personally-owned and -worn navy blue silk neck tie with small embroidered gray design accents, made by A. Sulka & Company, measuring 54″ long. Manufacturer’s and material tags are sewn to the underside of the narrow end. In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance signed by David J. Powers, son of David F. Powers, who was JFK’s close friend and assistant. In part: “Many consider my father to have been President Kennedy’s best friend. They campaigned together from 1946 to 1963, and traveled the world together on presidential visits from 1960 to 1963. During their travels, they frequently needed to switch from casual attire to something more formal. My father and JFK were not the same size, but that mattered little when it came to neckties. This A. Sulka & Company navy silk tie with a gray graphic design was worn by JFK and subsequently ended up with my father, who may have worn it as well, as they did share on occasion. My father carefully separated this tie from others that were his alone and preserved it among his valuable memorabilia and archives.” While any items worn by presidents are incredibly desirable, the status of John and Jacqueline Kennedy as American fashion icons make pieces worn by them even more appealing. Highly sought-after, and with its excellent provenance from the Powers family, this is an extraordinary presidential piece. RR Auction COA.
