Orville Wright (August 19, 1871 - January 30, 1948), historic American aviation pioneer, authentic autographed vintage bank check, presented in a custom 18 x 22 inch framed showpiece display. The check, dated February 5, 1917, in the amount of $45, has been uniquely mounted and matted into an oversized photograph of the Wright Brothers' (Orville & Wilbur) famous first flight and housed in a museum quality, shadowbox style frame.

 In late 1926, early 1927, Orville Wright refurbished the Wright Flyer in preparation for loaning it to the Science Museum in London, where it stayed until 1948. During this refurbishment, the airplane was recovered entirely with new Pride of the West muslin. Harvey D. Geyer was a close friend, associate and employee of the Wright Brothers from 1910 on, and upon the death of Orville Wright in 1948, was appointed as the technical advisor to the Wright Estate, so it seems obvious he could easily have obtained a sizable section of the original fabric. This relic was obtained by a prominent New York dealer of Western Americana from George H. Custer Family descendants in the Dayton area.
