Chester A. Arthur

Beautiful Variant 2 Executive Mansion card

with Arthurʼs bold, flamboyant signature

Chester Alan Arthur, 18291886.  21st President of the United States, 18811885.  2¾”x 4⅛” Executive Mansion card boldly signed, Chester A. Arthur.

This card, with the words “executive mansion,  /  washington” printed at the top right, is Variant 2 identified in The History of Collecting Executive Mansion, White House, and The White House Cards.  The authors note that while this variant is less scarce than Variant 1, of which only a few examples are known, this one has become more difficult to obtain in recent years.

Arthurʼs flamboyant signature makes for an excellent display, and this card is particularly nice for that.  Arthur has boldly signed it in brown ink in his distinctive hand.  The card is lightly toned and has a tiny foxing spot in the blank bottom area and mounting remnants on the back.  Overall it is in fine condition.  It would make an excellent framed display.  Click here to see an example of a similar card that we framed.
