RR Auctions Washington Post Photo Signed By Four Presidents

RR Auctions Four PresidentsGlossy 10 x 8 photo of former presidents Nixon, Ford, and Carter standing alongside then-president Ronald Reagan as they deliver a memorial statement for slain Egyptian President Anwar Sadat before departing to attend the funeral in 1981, signed in black felt tip, “Gerald R. Ford,” “Ronald Reagan,” (as president), and “Jimmy Carter,” and in blue felt tip, “Richard Nixon 12-10-86.” Photo is stamped on the reverse, “Staff photo by Harry Naltchayan, The Washington Post—reproduction is forbidden” In fine condition, with some irregular ink adhesion and slight brushing to Carter’s signature, which remains completely legible. All signatures were obtained through correspondence with the chief executives, with the order of acquisition beginning with Ford, then Nixon, Carter, and finally Reagan, completing the quartet when the photo was sent to him at the White House. There are very few of these photographs in circulation due to the restrictions placed on its distribution and reproduction. The photo won the World Press Photo Award in 1981. A scarce, award-winning pose with all signatures personally attained through hard work. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
