Posted by RALEIGH DEGEER AMYX on Sat, Jun 18, 2011 @ 09:29 AM

Featured is the World War 11 Leather Jacket of Dwight D. Eisenhower. This Class-One War Relic was, following the Death of Ike, in 1969, in the possession of his Valet and Friend, Sgt. John Moaney. Sgt. Moaney and the General first met in 1942 at Telegraph Cottage, 15 miles South of London - The Headquarters of The Allied effort in The European Theater. It was there that the General met with Moaney for the purpose of interviewing him for the position of Valet and Assistant to the Commanding General. At that time Sgt. Moaney had never even seen a General. But then and there Ike had Moaney reassigned to him at Headquarters. And from 1942 until the President's Death in 1969 (27 years) they were together each and every day. After the President retired, as President in 1961, Ike moved, with Mamie, to their new home in Pennsylvania - Gettysburg Farm. And Sgt. John Moaney and his wife, Delores also moved into the beautiful home with the Eisenhower's.

WINGED VISION - SIGNIFICANT ART CREATION BY FREDERICK HART-

Posted by RALEIGH DEGEER AMYX on Fri, Jun 17, 2011 @ 02:17 PM

Featured is one of the most Stunning examples, Winged vision", of the creative ability of one of America's Greatest Sculptors in History, Frederick Hart (1943-1999 - age 56). Hart was best known for his Public Monuments, such as his Impressive Sculpture at The Viet Nam Wall. But, perhaps Hart is even better known for his masterly work in the Arena of Acrylic - a technique Frederick Hart patented and Coined - "Sculpting with Light".

Along the way of a life-time as an Historian and Collector it was the Privilege of Raleigh DeGeer Amyx to become a good friend of Frederick Hart. Illustrated below is a photograph of Raleigh Degeer Amyx and the Famed Sculptor, Frederick Hart. They visited back and forth and occasionally traded Manuscripts for Art. Amyx was interested in the Sculptures of Hart and he was interested in Manuscripts from The Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection, provided they were Signed by Czar Nicholas, The Last Czar of Russia. In addition to that, Mr. Hart had a keen interest in anything of Historic Pertinence with a direct connection to The Last Czar of Russia. Winged Vison shown above represents one of those Important Trades between the two Historians.

GOLF BALLS FROM BAG OF THE PRESIDENTS-RALEIGH DEGEER AMYX COLLECTION

Posted by RALEIGH DEGEER AMYX on Mon, May 30, 2011 @ 02:31 PM

Featured in this writing are Three different Golf Balls owned and used by General Dwight D. Eisenhower.  All are from Eisenhower's actual Golf Bag.  Each is Personally Monogrammed.  On one, the Golf Ball  reads "Ike" and on another "Ike Eisenhower" and interestingly on another,"General Ike". This Rare Trio are each straight from President Eisenhower's Golf Bag.

President Eisenhower, can be seen, on a Presidential Journey aboard Ship, actually lining up one of the Golf Balls, with the aid of his Personal Valet – Sgt. John Moaney.  Moaney was Ike's Valet from early 1942 until General Dwight D. Eisenhower's death in 1969.  Day in and day out, General Eisenhower and Sgt. Moaney were in close proximity to each other.  And when President Eisenhower left The White House on January 21, 1961, Ike retired to his Gettysburg Farm in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.  And there he set up a separate room for Sgt. John Moaney, so that he could always live, with his wife, Dolores, who was also the Eisenhower Cook - right there in the Big House with Mamie and President Eisenhower.

The American Heritage Collection are only the Golf Balls straight from the Golf Bags of the President's. They include Golf Balls from President Warren G. Harding, President Richard M. Nixon, President John F. Kennedy as well as others.

THEODORE ROOSEVELT'S-SILVER FRAME - COLLECTION OF RALEIGH DEGEER AMYX

Posted by RALEIGH DEGEER AMYX on Wed, May 25, 2011 @ 11:15 AM

Featured is Theodore Roosevelt's (1858-1919) Personal Silver Frame and Cabinet photo – as a"Rough Rider". The President's Silver Frame contains an Impressive photo of him with a Stamp on the verso, Officially Marked - "Presidents File".

The President kept his personal property, as illustrated above,within the White House living quarters until the Roosevelts permanently left, in 1909.  At that time, it was presented to a favored White House Employee as a Gesture of Appreciation.  When properly brought to the polished state of immaculate and unblemished appearance, T.R's Ornate Silver Frame brings on even more Stunning clarity.

The 1898 Rough Rider Venture into Cuba, during the Spanish American war, was perhaps, singularly the most Important Event in Theodore Roosevelt's Life.  Overwhelming Publicity was garnished from his role as a Rough Rider and it was a Major reason why he was elected Governor of New York.  And if he had not been the young Governor of New York, T.R. would not have been selected as Vice-President under William McKinley. And not long after, T.R. was to become an Accidental President, when President McKinley was Assassinated in 1901.  A few years later he was Elected President, in his own right, and Theodore Roosevelt's exploits, as well as accomplishments, have been carefully attested to by Historians over time.

 ALWAYS PHOTOGENIC - PRESIDENT THEODORE ROOSEVELT

 There was a Tremendous amount of Publicity resulting from the Rough Rider conflict during the 1898 Spanish-American war and the Gallantry of the future President was extensively covered by the Press.  At the time of the adventure, there was an Official Recommendation for the Congressional Medal of Honor. This Distinction of Bravery ultimately arrived on the desk of a Politically Conflicting - Secretary of War. The Secretary then refused to sign off on this Major Honor.  Many years of ensuing debate followed; with The Congressional Medal of Honor, the Epitome of Heroic Distinction, eventually being Approved and Awarded by President William Jefferson Clinton in 2001.

Posted by RALEIGH DEGEER AMYX on Tue, May 24, 2011 @ 12:55 PM

The Historic Leather Case General Dwight D. Eisenhower always traveled with, from 1942 to 1969, has at last been located. There was no place on earth that Ike ever embarked to that this Monogrammed case, along with Ike's trusted Valet-Sgt. John Moaney, was not in travel and the Case was always near the side of The General and or his Valet.

During World War II, beginning in 1942, it was the task of Sgt. John Moaney, the General's personally selected Valet, to hand-carry the above Monogrammed Leather Case whenever he traveled with the General and also with President Dwight D. Eisenhower.  There was absolutely no mission carried out by The General and President that this Handsome Personalized Leather Travel Case did not participate....along with unfolding and eventful history.

Sgt. John Moaney, coincidentally, married the personal cook of Mamie and Dwight Eisenhower.  This marriage occurred immediately after World War II and continued until Sgt. Moaney's Death in 1980. Historian and Collector Raleigh DeGeer Amyx was well acquainted with the Moaney's.  And they became staunch friends.  Part of the story being shared in this historic account is further expounded upon, in a detailed letter on White House Stationery, to Mr. Amyx. This letter contains critical Provenance to better explain the nuances as well as the importance of this Historic Relic.

The contents of the Eisenhower's Leather Case always contained the personal effects of The President, such as extra handsomely Monogrammed hankies, Monogrammed Eisenhower matchbook covers, a piece of Winston Churchill's Birthday Cake (this is still inside the Case, encapsulated in its original tiny box), a shoe polishing cloth for the General's shoes, as well as a Leather Wallet Monogrammed  "John A. Moaney", along with his personal ID photos still inside. Ike's Leather Case was handsomely Monogrammed on top with a brass plaque" DDE", sometime during World War II.

There is Detailed Provenance from a White House Maid that often had direct responsibility for interacting with and caring for both Caroline and John F. Kennedy Jr. Her name was Viola "Big Momma" Wise. The writer knew her well back in the 1970's and 1980's. When President John F. Kennedy was Assassinated in 1963, the Funeral was held, November 25, 1963, the 3rd Birthday of JFK Jr.  Following this Sudden and Painful event in the Kennedy Family and in the History of America, a number of important pieces of the President and his Family were dispersed to those with direct Kennedy Family access. These Striking and beautifully hand-crafted JFK Jr. shorts are one of those more Important Relics.

Sometimes Viola "Big Momma" Wise would share stories, with Raleigh DeGeer Amyx, as related to her 30 Year Career at The White House. Some were put into writing. In this particular case, "Big Momma" shared verbally and in writing the following Kennedy Story. And this Story is also attested to on White House Stationery, as "Big Momma" explained, in a full-page Letter of Provenance, her Association with the Kennedy Brother and Sister. Anyway, there came a day when "Big Momma" was Rocking JFK Jr. And she looked at JFK Jr. and said, "You're an Ugly Darlin Baby - but you are the Son of a President and a Millionaire and so "Big Momma" is gonna keep on rockin you." And she would smile broadly at the young lad as she caressed him and she continued with a favorite chore of that White House day.

EISENHOWER'S ROLEX - LOCATED - IN THE RALEIGH DEGEER AMYX COLLECTION

Posted by RALEIGH DEGEER AMYX on Sat, May 14, 2011 @ 07:15 PM

Ike's Rolex was located recently.  This 18K Gold Rolex may very well be the most Important time-piece on the Planet.  It was worn by President Eisenhower, almost daily, throughout his 1953-1960 Tenure as Commander in Chief - at The White House.  However, it was actually presented to the General while he was the NATO Commander in 1950.

ROLEX SELECTED - GENERAL DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER -TO BE THE RECEPIENT OF THE 150,00TH ROLEX THEY MANUFACTURED

 This was an Important Presentation on the part of Rolex in that this Rolex was the 150,000th Rolex ever Manufactured by them.  The 100,000th  Rolex had previously been presented to Sir Winston Churchill. Therefore, Rolex obviously considered certain Manufacturing Milestone's as being of Major Significance.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT CLOSE-UP OF PRESIDENT DWIGHT DAVID EISENHOWER WEARING THE 150,00TH ROLEX ON HIS LEFT WRIST

General Dwight David Eisenhower wore this Rolex from the time of its 1950 Presentation until his death in 1969.  Before his Death, President Eisenhower saw to it that it was given to his longtime Aide and Valet - Sgt. John Moaney.  In a Book, Authored by President Eisenhower, entitled  "At Ease - Stories I Tell To Friends", Eisenhower described Moaney as a Man Indispensable to him during his life-time. An Exalted measure of Praise for his friend and confidant from the time of their World War 11 1942 meeting until Ike's Death in 1969. Ike and Moaney were with each other daily for 27 consecutive years.
