Rare 1945 check endorsed in full
Description  

Bank check, 6 x 2.5, filled out and signed by Alice Falkenberg, payable to Albert Einstein for $16.58, October 1, 1945, endorsed on the reverse in fountain pen, “Albert Einstein.” Also endorsed by Einstein’s personal secretary, “Helene Dukas.” In fine condition, with a vertical fold and expected bank stamps and cancellation holes (nothing affecting Einstein’s bold, crisp signature). Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA. This dates to just months after the US dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, after which Einstein dedicated much of his life to speaking out against nuclear warfare and advocating for disarmament. Full Einstein signatures are quite scarce, as the genius typically favored the use of just a single initial in his first name, and this is a positively wonderful exemplar. RR Auction COA.
