Bank check, 8.25 x 3.25, filled out in another hand and signed by Wright, payable to The Ironic Jewell & Vision Co., for $16.00, dated July 21, 1917. Beautifully matted and framed against a 19.5 x 16.5 reproduction photo of the first flight, along with a small swatch of original fabric from the original Wright flyer, flown on December 17, 1903, to an overall size of 22 x 18. In fine condition, with a couple staple holes to check, as well as expected cancellation holes, two lightly touching top of the first letter of signature.
