#212 - Winston Churchill Estimate: $1,000+

Three weeks after Pearl Harbor, Prime Minister Churchill receives an American donation to the "British War Fund"

World War II-dated Valley National Bank check, 6.25 x 2.75, filled out and signed in another hand, payable to Hon. Winston Churchill for $10, December 26, 1941, endorsed on the reverse by the British prime minister, "Winston Churchill." Above Churchill's signature is a notation in another hand, "Contribution to British War Fund—$10.00." In fine condition, with light overall creasing, and cancelation stamped and holes affecting the signature. Churchill is rare in checks—endorsed or otherwise—and this example boasts an outstanding connection to World War II. The bombing of Pearl Harbor had taken place just nineteen days before this check was sent, leading to American entry into the war.
