Cold nights, dark mornings and rainy commutes.
If it wasn’t for Christmas around the corner, November wouldn’t have much to recommend it. Or would it?
Historians would argue that November has seen several world-defining moments through the ages.
Let me show you some unique pieces of history which mark these historic events...
History’s great Commanders-in-Chief
First to Dallas, Texas, November 22, 1963... President JF Kennedy lies mortally wounded in the presidential limousine.
Lee Harvey Oswald has shot him in the head and chest.
Kennedy’s death shocked the world – and he remains an American icon to this day.
But now you can keep his memory alive with a rare original poster from his successful presidential campaign in 1960, which bears the slogan: “Leadership for the 60’s”.
Ronald Reagan is a more recent incumbent of the presidency.
On November 2, 1983 he signed a bill to create a public holiday in the name of Martin Luther King. Americans celebrate the day in January each year.
A Reagan signed programme could be yours today, for just £950.
The first President of the United States George Washington delivered his famed Farewell Address to the Army on November 2, 1783. It followed his victory in the American War of Independence.
Not surprisingly, his autographs too can sell for six figure sums.
Today you could become the owner of a lottery ticket signed by the first US President for £22,000 – an incredible piece of history.
November 29, 2001: Beatle George Harrison dies.
Although The Beatles only recorded together as a group for 10 years, between 1960 and 1970, their legacy as the most influential band of all time continues to grow to this day.
More than 40 years after their split they remain one of the world's most popular group for fans, critics and memorabilia collectors alike.
Two pages from an autograph album, signed by John, Paul and George in August 1963, are currently in stock. John Lennon in fact signed twice, as both himself and “Benny Higgins (juggler)”.
Hollywood's leading man Cary Grant was a star of the silver screen.
You may not know that Grant, famed for his trans-Atlantic accent, was born and raised in Paul Fraser Collectibles’ home town of Bristol, UK.
Grant died on November 29, 1986 but his legacy lives on with collectors. A signed handwritten note on a race card we have in stock makes for a perfect piece of Hollywood memorabilia.
Other anniversaries this month:
November 21, 1929: Salvador Dali exhibits his work for the first time. We have a remarkable sketch by the great surrealist available now.
1999: Tiger Woods becomes the first golfer to win four straight PGA Tour tournaments since Ben Hogan in 1953. A cap signed by Tiger is just a click away.
November 17, 1558: Elizabeth I became Queen of England. What followed were some of the country’s most turbulent years.
The daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn had a ruthless streak that belied her nickname: Good Queen Bess.
Elizabeth had the Catholic pretender to the throne Mary Queen of Scots beheaded in 1587. Her Navy repelled the Spanish Armada the following year.
Royal collectibles are among the most coveted...
And, today, we offer you two fascinating artefacts from her 45 year reign. The first is an Elizabeth-signed document from 1563. The second is a rare wax seal known as the Royal Great Seal.
The seal stamped royal approval on important state documents. In fact, it may even have condemned Mary to her fate.
Both unique items of history are of a value rarely seen on the private markets.
November 13, 1977: The last episode of much-loved British sitcom Dad’s Army airs. Get a piece of handwritten script by the writers today.
November 1, 1800: John Adams is the first US President to take up residence in the White House.
Documents from Adams’s presidency sell for hundreds of thousands. But how about owning an actual piece of him? We have a strand of Adams’s hair available for you today – priced at just £49.95.
I hope this trip through the annals of November has given you a flavour of the unique pieces of history that could be yours today.
