Description

President Johnson pays his taxes in 1967—the only presidentially-signed LBJ check we have seen

Extremely rare Johnson City Bank check, 8.25 x 3, filled out in type and signed by Johnson as president, "Lyndon B. Johnson," payable to Mr. E. D. Spellman - Tax Assessor - Collector, Burnet County for $14.84, October 2, 1967. In fine condition. This is the only front-signed Lyndon B. Johnson check we have ever encountered, as well as the only example signed during his presidency that we have come across. The three other examples we have offered were endorsed by Johnson on the reverse, with two dating to his post-presidential retirement and the other during his time as Senate Majority Whip. Checks signed by US presidents remain scarce and very desirable, and, in some instances, are completely unattainable-Johnson stands as one of the hardest to find of all modern-day presidents.
