Item 19 - William McKinley Catalog 580 (Apr 2020)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $962.50 (includes buyer's premium)


Uncommon matte-finish 5.5 x 7.75 photo of McKinley in a head-and-shoulders pose, affixed to a 6.5 x 8.75 mount, signed and inscribed in ink, "With most cordial regards, W. McKinley.” Inherent to the image is a December 1896 copyright notice by Courtney Studio of Canton, Ohio. In very good to fine condition, with trimmed edges, and some light scuffing and soiling.

The copyright date on the image is December 1896, meaning the image was taken by the Courtney Studios of Canton, Ohio, about a month after McKinley defeated William Jennings Bryan in the 1896 presidential election. The copyright date also means that the head-and-shoulders portrait was signed either just prior to or during McKinley’s presidency. A handsome example, and McKinley is not common in signed photographs.
