About this Item

As Treasurer of the United States during the Eisenhower administration (1953-61), Priest's printed signature appeared on many millions of pieces of U.S. currency. Full signature on her 3½" X 2" business card, Sacramento, CA, n.y. Near fine. Small smudge to "t" in "Priest"; small show-through at upper center from tiny tape stain on verso. Handsome card as California state treasurer, a position she held from 1967 until her death, bearing the gold state seal at upper left. Uncommon in this form, and accompanied by a 7" X 9" glossy black-and-white news agency photograph, a March 8, 1953 closeup of her handing a one dollar bill to another woman, with original paper label (affixed to verso) describing the scene: "U.S. Treasurer Ivy Baker Priest (left) presents a dollar bill bearing her autograph to director Alma K. Schneider of the U.S. Mint at Denver during an inspection trip. The one-dollar bill is one of the first printing to bear signatures of GOP treasurer and secretary of the treasury in 20 years." Very good. A bit edgeworn, with small closed tear at upper margin. A nice, very displayable pair. Bookseller Inventory # 16067
