Samuel F. Cody Receipt for Flying Cathedral Parts - 1913


Regular price $85.00

Small 7.5x6.5" printed receipt with handwritten annotations for small parts from Brown Brothers sold to Cody. Samuel F. Cody was an American famous for his western melodramas performed in Europe but more so for piloting the first aircraft in England. This receipt is dated just months before his death in the wreckage of his Flying Cathedral; his funeral drew 100,000 mourners. I highly recommend reading one or more of the excellent biographies of Cody which describe the life of this genuine character. I have two receipts available, one dated June 2nd and the other July 14. They are nearly identical but for different purchases. Unless you specify, my choice and price is for each.
