Truman, Harry S
Harry S. Truman Signed Dollar Bill and Typed Letter Signed.
1935. Rare series 1935D silver certificate one dollar bill, boldly signed by Harry S. Truman on the portrait side. Double matted and framed with a portrait of Truman, plaque reading "The Buck Stops Here!" and a typed letter signed by Truman as President on White House letterhead to Secretary of the Treasury John Snyder. Dated April 19, 1948 the letter reads: Memorandum for: John W. Snyder Secretary of the Treasury From: The President I am returning the copy of Mr. Cooley's letter which you handed to me. It certainly is most interesting and I appreciate your bringing it over. It's these things that help. "H.S.T." The recipient, John Wesley Snyder was a close personal friend of Truman and served as Secretary of the Treasury from 1946 to 1953 in the Truman administration. He is the first native-born Arkansan to hold a US Cabinet post. In fine condition. An attractive presentation. President Harry S. Truman famously had a sign on his desk in the White House that read, "The Buck Stops here!" The reverse side of the painted glass sign mounted on a walnut base read "I'm from Missouri." United States Marshal Fred A. Canfil had seen a similar sign while visiting the Federal Reformatory at El Reno, Oklahoma. Canfil asked the warden if a similar sign could be made for President Truman, and the sign was mailed to Truman in October 1945. It became a favorite fixture in his office, and Truman popularized the statement. He referred to it several times in public statements, including his farewell address in January 1953.
