RARE ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH OF GENERAL GEORGE S. PATTON, SIGNED BY HIM LESS THAN A YEAR PRIOR TO HIS DEATH
PATTON, George S. Photograph signed. Probably Germany, . Original black-and-white photograph, measuring 5 by 7 inches. $8500.
Original black-and-white photograph of General Patton, signed by him.
This bust-length photograph shows a stoic General Patton facing forward at attention, wearing his trademark helmet and, most importantly, wearing a uniform decorated with full four-star insignia. Patton was only promoted to a four-star general in January of 1945, less than a year before his death, making this one of the last images captured of him and certainly one of the last to be signed.
Minor foxing to verso. A fine signed photograph. Rare.
