(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $10,000.00 +
Sold Price: $15,000.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Extraordinary vintage pearl-finish 9.75 x 8 photo of President Franklin D. Roosevelt sitting next to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill on the deck of the USS Augusta during the Atlantic Conference in mid-April of 1941, signed in fountain pen by Roosevelt and Churchill, with the latter signing in the lower border. Also signed by Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King, Chief of Naval Operations Harold R. Stark, and General George Marshall. In very good to fine condition, with scattered light creasing and rippling, and a small tear and area of emulsion loss to the lower right border.

On August 9 and 10, 1941, Roosevelt and Churchill convened aboard the battleship Augusta to discuss the World War II agenda and to draft a policy of eight ‘common principles’ that would determine Allied goals in a postwar landscape. Issued on August 14th, the subsequent Atlantic Charter affirmed American support of Great Britain, while the various clauses contained therein addressed the preemptive steps to ensure peace ‘after the final destruction of the Nazi tyranny.’ Governments that endorsed the Atlantic Charter, and effectively declared war on the Axis, joined the Roosevelt-coined United Nations, forming the basis for the modern UN. Further augmented by its historical backdrop, the addition of three WWII military leaders, and the noticeable outline of Roosevelt’s knee braces—itself a rarity in FDR images—this item exists as the premiere instance in which we have offered a Roosevelt-Churchill signed photo. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
