This very special item, which contains Charles A. Lindbergh’s signature and a photo of Lindbergh and his plane, is very rare. The Certificate of Authenticity reads “Charles A. Lindbergh — (1902-1974) American aviator who, in his ‘Spirit of St. Louis’, was the first to fly solo non-stop across the Atlantic Ocean. D.S., a program for a banquet given in Lindbergh’s honor in Spokane on Sep. 12, 1927 – the same year as his historic flight – signed in black ink on the cover. Parts of the signature appear to have been traced-over, though all of the ink appears contemporary to the date of the event.”—Charles Augustus Lindbergh, was an American aviator, author, inventor, explorer, and social activist. As a 25-year-old U.S. Air Mail pilot, Lindbergh emerged suddenly from virtual obscurity to instantaneous world fame as the result of his Orteig Prize-winning solo non-stop flight on May 20 21, 1927, made from Roosevelt Field in Garden City on New York’s Long Island to Le Bourget Field in Paris, France, a distance of nearly 3,600 statute miles (5,800 km), in a single-engine monoplane “Spirit of St. Louis”. As a result of this flight, Lindbergh was the first person in history to be in New York one day and (33 hours later) Paris the next. Lindbergh, a U.S. Army Air Corps Reserve officer, was also awarded the nation’s highest military decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his historic exploit.
