In 1961 New York Post columnist Leonard Lyons wrote to the President and informed that a JFK signature was then selling for $75, while George Washington’s was priced at $175. Lyons received the following response:

I appreciate your letter about the market on Kennedy signatures. It is hard to believe that the going price is so high now.
In order not to depress the market any further, I will not sign this letter.

Best Regards,
