Authentic 1944 Fdr D-day Prayer -executive Christmas Gift-one Of 100 Originals For Sale

Authentic 1944 Fdr  D-day Prayer -executive Christmas Gift-one Of 100 Originals

This is the original "large"1944 White House authorized printing ofPresident Franklin D. Roosevelt'sD-DAY prayer delivered and dated June 6th, 1944 . Approximately 100 copies of this historicD-DAY prayer were ordered printedby FDR as his Executive Christmas gift for his last Christmas as Presidentin 1944 as he would die sadlyin office a few months later in April of 1945.

This is oneof the 100 originalsissued from 1944 measuring approximately a large 14" x 21" in size and professionally matted and framed to an overall size of approx 17" x 23" .

This rare FDR Christmas gift was obtained from an estate here in Washington D.C. from a family member whosegrandmother had worked in the Executive office for FDR at the White House from 1941-1945 during the War Years . It waskept for over 75 yrs in an old storage box in a basement and shows moderate toning/staining mainly to the upper right and center section of the document though to be honest after being reframed looks impressive andto be frank the toning adds to the period aging and authenticity most often seenon an authentic original FDR D-Day Christmas print when one actually surfaces for sale.

This is one of the rarest of official Presidential Christmas gifts and with only 100 originals printed in December of 1944 and one of the most desireable to serious Presidential Christmas collectors or FDR specialist collectors.

Only a couple of original examples have ever appeared for sale on or anywhere in the last 15 yrs with the last two to sell in public sale fetching over $7,500 and $8,300 ea. resepctively. I found one othercurrently being offered for sale at $9,500 that states it has the "original" Seal of the President ... well.. that is impossible since the originalD-Day prayer / scroll was issued on parchment type paper as this one with NO Seal - so eitherthat offering is a fake or someone added a Seal after the issue to make it look more "Presidential".

In any case. the bottom line is that the original 100 examples of the true D-Day Prayer scroll Christmas gifts from FDR in 1944 did NOT have a Presidential Seal at all !

Another note is that the FDR library reprinted this rare FDR D-Day prayer back in the early 70s in a "reduced" smaller size on lesser quality paper (I believe the reprints in the 70s measured approx 11" x 14" and are easily distinguished from the larger originals from 1944 to a trained eye. Another seller has routinely posted on themass produced reprints at $14-25 and his descriptions might lead some to believe he is offering the original rare print from 1944 .

This item isGUARANTEED 100% to be the original 1944 FDR D-Day Prayer Christmas gift print/ scroll given by FDR as his last executive Christmas gift from 1944 and is NOT the "common" mass produced smaller FDR library reprint.I spent over $200 tohave this print custom and professionally framed with 100% conservation materials and full UV protective glass. It looks really nice and and displayshandsomely .I have priced this rare original to sell reasonably as well. I amfairly certain.. YOU WILL BE PLEASED !! I sincerely doubt you will find an authenic 1944 FDR D-DAY Christmas print at a better price and displayed as handsomely as this example.

I am also verypicky about selling only quality authenticmaterial!I am a trusted and respected seller on forover 14 years and have been buying/selling political items here in the Washington, D.C. area for over 30+ years with White House Christmas cards and gifts being a specialty for me .

Item will be sent via UPS fully protected. Please offer with 100% complete CARD payment accepted via PAYPAL**Good luck in offerding and thanks for looking**
