George Custer Autograph

A George Custer autograph used to be rare, with just a George Custer autograph on a page with noting more selling for around $3,000.  Then, a batch of George Custer autograph items came out in bulk such as a George Custer autograph on his personal check and a George Custer autograph on an envelope to his wife (letter missing) where he signed, “Mrs. Genl. George Custer”, where you can frame and matte just the George Custer autograph to display as “Genl. George Custer” or “George Custer.”  Then the price went down to just less than $2,000.  Also, on the market are envelopes to Custer’s wife where he signed “Mrs. Genl. Custer” so it can be framed and matted to just show a “Genl. Custer” autograph and those sell for around $1,000.  We have some in stock now!  Here are the George Custer autograph items that we have had at auction:

Rare George Custer Autograph Letter Signed Sold for $8,125

Very rare autograph letter signed by George Armstrong Custer as Lt. Colonel of the 7th Cavalry, regarding the effect of uniforms on troop morale and discipline. From Fort Leavenworth, Kansas on 24 January 1870, Custer writes to Lieutenant Moylan, in full, ”I would respectfully state for the information of the Brevet Major General Comdg the regiment that some of the company officers appear on parade wearing ‘government pants!’ As all officers are expected to appear on parade in full uniform and as the dress hat and epaulettes are not in keeping with the pants intended for the enlisted men (when worn by an officer) I would recommend that uniformity in dress be required in officers appearing at dress parades or inspections. I have seen fit to call the attention of the regimental commander to the above fact believing it had not come under his notice heretofore. And would respectfully ask to be informed whether it is expected by him that I will, in future, report or take other action on any similar irregularities which may come under my observation when upon duty. / Yours &c. / GA Custer / Lt Col 7th Cav / Br Maj Gnl / USA”.
