A Winston Churchill autograph will vary in price greatly.  A superb content letter will command tens of thousands of dollars where a routine content letter will be worth around $1,500.  An average signed photo might fetch up to $2,500 but a large or more attractive than usual signed photo might sell for double or triple that.  The least expensive Winston Churchill autograph that you can get might be just a plain signature which should set you back $750 – $1,000.  Be careful when buying a Winston Churchill autograph.  A lot on the internet are just pre-printed and not hand signed and beyond that, you still have to worry about forgeries. Here are a few examples of a Winston Churchill autograph that I have sold with the price realized:

Winston Churchill Autograph on a Letter Where He Resigns as Prime Minister — ”…for some time past I have not felt that at my age it would be right for me to incur such new and indefinite responsibilities…”

This is the actual document announcing Winston Churchill’s resignation from the office of Prime Minister, dated 6 April 1955. Winston Churchill autograph is on this letter, which is written after suffering a severe stroke in 1953. Churchill’s health deteriorated quickly affecting both his speech and ability to walk.

Written on official 10 Downing Street stationery, letter to Conservative politician John Harvey reads in part: ”…For some time past I have not felt that at my age it would be right for me to incur such new and indefinite responsibilities I have therefore tendered my resignation to The Queen”. Churchill endorses Anthony Eden as his successor in upholding ”…the causes of Tory democracy which Lord Beaconsfield proclaimed, which Lord Randolph Churchill revived, and which I have tried to serve…[signed] Yours sincerely / Winston S. Churchill autograph”.  A very historical and important Winston Churchill autograph.  Sold for $12,500.
