Francis Gary Powers signed check drawn on the bank of "Security Pacific National Bank". Signed by Powers as Francis G. PSA/DNA Slabbed and graded Gem Mint 10. Check size 6" x 2.75", slabbed to 9.5" x 4.5". Francis Gary Powers was a distinguished pilot for the CIA's U-2 program during the height of the Cold War.Powers was arrested after his spy plane was shot down while flying a high-risk reconnaissance mission over Soviet airspace and was ultimately tried, convicted and put in a Soviet prison for espionage. Power's incredible story took place in early beginning of the cold war and during the creation of the Berlin wall (1961). This phenomenal period in history was wonderfully depicted in a Steven Spielberg's classic "The Bridge Of Spies" in which the full ambience of the cold period, the poverty, the fear, the governmental oppression and the building of the Berlin Wall allowed the viewer to perhaps more fully comprehend this incredible era and put Power's CIA mission into perspective.
