Harding, Warren and Florence

A pair of checks signed by the Hardings. Warren endorses on the back of a check from the Marion County Auditor’s Office in April 1897. Harding’s first run for office was the following year. This is an early example of his signature which is not common prior to becoming a public figure. Florence’s check is drawn on a Marion National Bank check. She fills it in and dates it April 29. The cancellation stamp on the reverse shows the year as 1921, making this less than two months after entering the White House as First Lady.
