General Eisenhower’s personally-owned and -used off-white linen five-star general handkerchief, folded to an overall size of 5.5 x 5.5, finely embroidered in white thread with the symbolic five stars surrounding his initials, “DDE.” In fine condition. Includes a letter of provenance on a White House card from Delores Moaney, wife of Sgt. John Moaney, who served as Dwight D. Eisenhower’s valet beginning in 1942. In part: “The ‘DDE’ five-star handkerchief was owned and used by President Eisenhower. My husband packed the President’s personal effects as they traveled together from 1942–1969.” In splendid condition. A paramount relic in symbolic five-star motif—the rarest of all President Eisenhower hankies—straight from the pocket of the general to his own long-standing valet, Sgt. John Moaney, a faithful companion from 1942 through to Eisenhower’s passing.
