Mark Twain Framed Photo & Signature Presentation



This incredibly rare photo presentation includes a 2-3/4″ x 4-1/2″ off-white sheet

The signed sheet is in fine overall condition, and authenticated and

encapsulated by PSA/DNA.  Also included in the presentation is a photo

of the famed author.  Samuel Clemens signing as his pen name “Mark

Mark Twain has been praised among all else for his wit and satire and
