NICOLAE CEAUSESCU Autograph Photo - From Hirsch Cohen
Top notch signed photograph of Nicolae Ceaucescu from the collection of Hirsch Cohen. Hirsch Cohen is well known as having been a titan in the autograph collecting hobby. Ceausescu is a hard autograph to find as he was suddenly executed while in office after a military coup in 1989. Making this probably the best Ceausescu signature one could find is the fact that it includes the envelope from Romania and the letter addressed to Hirsch Cohen regarding the signature. All well framed in communist red. This photograph seems to be the one he preferred to give out to honor autograph requests while he was serving as President of Socialist Republic of Romania the General Secretary of the Romanian Communist Party from 1965-1989. Not only is the provenance of this rare signature air tight but, as one might imagine coming from a quite advanced collector, the condition is top notch as well with no damage that I can make out through the expert framing job. The frame is about 25.5 x 12.5 inches and the photograph itself is about 8 x 5.5 inches. Wonderful piece.
