C. Powell Signed Photo & TLS "no decisions regarding my future plans" to be President

A typed letter signed and signed photograph by Secretary of State Colin Powell. Both signed "A.C. Powell" in black ink. The letter is 1p, measuring 7" x 8.5", No place, dated January 3, 1995. Addressed to Stephen Paraskivas, Powell thanks him for thinking him "worthy of the office of President of the United States" but states "I have made no decisions regarding my future plans." He writes that he will enclose a signed photograph as requested, which is accompanied in the lot, measuring 8" x 10". A lovely color portrait of Powell dressed in his military uniform, with numerous flags in the background. Signed on the lower margin. The letter has foxing and light soiling to the left edge, and there is a small smudge to the "A" of Powell's signature. The photograph and signature are very fine.

Colin L. Powell (1937-2021) served as U.S. Secretary of State from 2001 to 2005 under President George W. Bush and was the first African-American secretary of state in the country's history. He served in the Army for 35 years and rose to the rank of four-star general and was Commander of the U.S. Army Forces Command in 1989.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
