Personal check, 8.25 x 3, filled out in another hand and signed by Disney, “Walter E. Disney,” payable to Dolores Scott for $2500, April 23, 1950. In fine condition, with three vertical folds (one passing between his middle initial and last name), and expected bank stamps and cancellation holes (holes trivially affecting a portion of the first letter in his signature). Scott was Walt Disney’s influential personal secretary who worked for him for 35 years, beginning in 1930. She served as the ‘gatekeeper’ for anyone wanting to meet with Disney and oversaw his personal finances. A wonderful association with this ‘unsung hero’ of Disney’s greatest years, highlighted by the extremely bold example of his classic whimsical signature. Pre-certified Phil Sears COA and RR Auction COA.
