Description

He was convicted and received a nominal fine, but the decision was ultimately reversed on a technicality. Sharp vintage glossy 9 x 7 photo of the scholarly Scopes in a suit and tie, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "John T. Scopes, to Richard.” Affixed to a same-size sheet and in fine condition, with a few light stains. Scopes is scarce in signed photographs.
