Outstanding vintage sepia glossy 8 x 10 photo of Earhart posing before her Lockheed Model 5B Vega, the plane in which she made her historic flight in 1932 as the first woman to cross the Atlantic solo, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To the Boy of Collingdale, Amelia Earhart.” Archivally double matted and framed to an overall size of 14.25 x 16.25. A few surface marks, dings, and small creases (subtle, unobtrusive crease touching first name), small, faint marginal tape remnants to corners, and tiny dent to upper left edge, otherwise fine, clean condition. An exceptional image of Earhart with the aircraft that carried her into history. RRAuction COA.
