Charles Lindbergh and Anne Lindbergh Signed Photos (2)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,392.00

Individual sepia-toned original photographs signed, respectively, by Charles Lindbergh and his wife, Anne Lindbergh. The first captures Charles Lindbergh standing in front of his plane while engaged in a conversation with an unidentified individual. He has signed the photo, "Charles A. Lindbergh" in black fountain pen ("9/10") in the foreground. The second photograph pictures Anne Lindbergh, herself a noted aviatrix, seated in the cockpit of her plane. It is signed "Anne Lindbergh" in black fountain pen ("9") in the lower right corner. In 1927 Charles Lindbergh (1902-74) became the first person to make a nonstop solo transatlantic flight when he piloted his famed Spirit of St. Louis from New York to Paris. That feat not only made him an instant international celebrity but also earned him the Congressional Medal of Honor. In the 1930s his name again commanded headlines, this time tragically, when his infant son was kidnapped and then murdered. During World War II he received negative press for his stance on neutrality, but later offered his services to the military and flew in over fifty combat missions (as a civilian) in 1944 in the Pacific. Following the war he became a chief consultant for Pan American World Airways. These are extremely high-quality professional prints. Ideal for display, these signed photographs were once mounted and framed together, and each displays remnants of tape from framing on the reverse. Both are in exceptionally fine Excellent condition overall. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/PSA DNA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,392.00
