[United States Government]. EXECUTIVE ORDER FORBIDDING THE HOARDING OF GOLD COIN, GOLD BULLION AND GOLD CERTIFICATES. Modern reproduction of poster-size [28 by 43.5 cm] version of the Executive Order of April 5, 1933 distributed by Postmaster General James A. Farley for display in post offices. Mounted on black board and framed. Fine. An attractive reproduction of one of President Roosevelt’s most controversial decisions, an action fraught with enormous worldwide economic consequences. On a more parochial level, it fundamentally affected coin collecting in the United States for the better part of half a century. Ex Stephen Epstein library.
