Now this is something very special.
It arrived on my desk yesterday. You are the first to see it.
And I believe it's an item every serious collector will want to own.
So you'll need to move fast.
It's an exceptional piece of U.S political history.
Signed by John F. Kennedy in August 1963.
And the story behind it makes it one of the most significant JFK autographs I've ever offered.
The brink of destruction.
In October 1962 the Cuban Missile Crisis pushed the world to the very brink of nuclear war.
To this day, it's terrifying to think how close we came to disaster.
It was the peak of the Cold War, and the stakes between the U.S and the Soviet Union had never been higher.
But thankfully the crisis was averted.
And in August 1963, Kennedy negotiated the first nuclear test ban with the Soviet Union. Many regard it as his "finest hour".
The two nations, along with Great Britain, signed the treaty in Moscow on August 5, 1963.
It was a monumental achievement, with a truly global impact.
And two weeks later the U.S government published this historic account.
A unique and important autograph.
The official record of U.S. foreign policy, published weekly between 1939 and 1989.
And this issue, dated August 19, 1963, is perhaps one of the most significant in its 50-year run.
It reports the signing of the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.
A milestone in 20th century political history.
And this original copy is signed by John F. Kennedy himself.
I believe it to be the only one of its kind in existence.
So if you collect political memorabilia, you'll appreciate the real significance of this unique piece.
And what a superb addition it could be to your collection.
Seven men who made history.
It has also been signed by members of his cabinet, including:
- Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson
- Secretary of State Dean Rusk (who signed the initial treaty in Moscow)
- Undersecretary of State W. Averill Harriman
- Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield
- Senator J.W. Fulbright
- CIA Director John McCone
It's a very nice example, signed clearly in black ink.
A specimen which will stand next to the finest in your collection.
Made all the more notable by the names that surround it, and nature of this document.
This is nothing short of world history in the making...
Signed by the very men who made it.
Valuable in every sense.
Kennedy signed the ratified treaty at the White House on October 7, 1963.
Just six weeks before he was assassinated.
And it was one of the most important things he ever did as President.
That significance is valued incredibly highly by collectors.
Which is why the White House desk on which Kennedy signed the treaty is the world's most valuable item of JFK memorabilia.
It sold at Sotheby's in 1996, from the estate of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, for a record $1.6 million.
It's quite possible Kennedy signed this document on that same desk.
At the very least, we know that the bulletin was published on August 19.
Two weeks after Dean Rusk signed the original treaty in Moscow, and two months before Kennedy ratified it in Washington.
Given those dates, this document is one of the earliest autographs relating to the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty that Kennedy ever signed.
(I know of one earlier item, long since sold and off the market.)
And that makes it an autograph of outstanding value.
Political history at its finest.
There are several factors that make an autograph historically important.
- The event that it represents
- The content of the document it appears on
- The date on which it was signed
- The wider story that it tells
The item I'm offering you today ticks every single box.
This is John F. Kennedy signing a record of his greatest achievement.
The Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, which made the world a safer place for every single human being on the planet.
It represents a personal triumph for him and the seven men whose names are signed next to his.
And I believe it's the only one of its kind in existence.
