A typed souvenir copy of Richard M. Nixon’s letter of resignation to Henry Kissinger on White House stationery, signed at the conclusion in blue ink by President Richard Nixon.

Nixon was tricked into signing most of these letters (people placed a photo of Nixon over the text of the letter and he thought that he was signing the white margin below the photo). This letter was procured by a former Speechwriter for Ronald Reagan by the name of Stan Whitlock.

The unframed letter measures 8″ x 10″ while the overall frame size is 27.75″ x 21″. The mahogany-finished frame is used, and has expected superficial wear including minor scuff marks, else near fine.

Sold with Letters of Authenticity from both The Autograph Source (Lifetime Guarantee) and independent third-party authenticator Beckett Authentication Services (BAS).
