Not only was he a multi millionaire from the famous GUGGENHEIM family during the turn the of the 20th century. Benjamin Guggenheim also lost his life while sailing on the maiden voyage of the White Star Line Ocean Liner " TITANIC ". Each check measures 8 3/8" x 2 7/8". Both checks were written out by DEWITT J.
SELIGMAN was a multi millionaire in his own right (google his name). He was the owner of EPOCH magazine as well as a real estate tycoon. SELIGMAN was Benjamin Guggenheims brother in law. Guggenheim married Florette Seligman - Dewitts sister.The one check that he wrote was for 10.00 to Benjamin Guggenhein and Benjamin signed it on the back in fountain pen. This check is also endorsed by " HENRY HARRIER ". The other check was made out to Florette Guggenheim for 20.00 and signed by her only , Benjamins signature is not on this check. It is signed by her on the back but it is very light. As I mentioned earlier Benjamin Guggenheim married Dewitt J. Both checks have the usual bank marks and punched hole cancellations. The checks are both soiled and lightly stained and creased but the B. Guggenheim signature is dark and readable.
