    Description

    Dewey-Warren Political Dollar Certificate 1948.
    Contributors to the Thomas Dewey-Earl Warren Republican presidency campaign of 1948 received one of these quality ABNCo lithographed certificates. Dewey would go down in defeat to incumbent Harry Truman in the greatest election upset in American history. We have all seen the famous photograph of President Truman grinning and holding up a copy of the Chicago Daily Tribune newspaper that (erroneously) announced his defeat with the oversized headline, "Dewey Defeats Truman." A great political/numismatic item with the register. This is one of the nicest of these Dewey certificates to cross our desks at Uncirculated with an upper right corner bump and pencilled collector notations on the back.
