Sought-after White House engraving signed by Barack Obama

Rare off-white 8 x 5.5 engraving of the south face of the White House by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, signed nicely in black felt tip by Barack Obama. In fine condition. Encapsulated in a PSA/DNA authentication holder, grading the autograph as "MINT 9."

The White House Reconstruction, also known as the Truman Reconstruction, was a comprehensive dismantling and rebuilding of the interior of the White House between 1949 and 1952. One of the more controversial changes was the Truman Balcony, a second-floor balcony overlooking the south lawn, which Truman asserted would provide shade for the lower portico and add balance to the otherwise vertical appearance created by the columns—President and First Lady Obama cited the Truman Balcony as their favorite spot in the White House.
