Historic twice-signed Japanese surrender inscribed to a submarine sonar engineer
Description  

Iconic twice-signed matte-finish 12.75 x 10.5 photo Nimitz signing the Japanese surrender aboard the USS Missouri, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To Emmanuel F. King—with best wishes and many thanks for the courtesy, C. W. Nimitz, Fleet Admiral, US Navy,” and signed again on the paperwork in the image, “C. W. Nimitz, U. S. Representative.” Framed in a period frame to an overall size of 13.75 x 11.75. Light rippling to edges and all writing a few shades light, otherwise fine condition.
