Up for bid is a very r are early h andwritten l etter to Mrs. Frances R. Hall from Isaac Scott Hathaway . The letter is in good condition with light stain s and chipping on edges.The letter is in response to Mrs. Hall inquiry about ordering Sculptors.This letter is signed with his very rarely seen initial sign ature. Isaac Scott Hathaway (1872-1967) was a nationally renowned sculptor and ceramist,he was also the first and only African American to design a U .S minted coin. He designed two U.S. commemorative coins: the Booker T. Washington memorial half-dollar, which was produced from 1946 to 1951, and the George Washington Carver-Booker T. Washington memorial half-dollar, produced 1951-54. A uni que piece of American history. This is a rare opportunity to own a hand wri tten letter by Mr. Hathaway. I'm nearing the end of listing Hathaway related items. So take advantage while they last.
