Montgomery (2)

Yes, I know there are people, like myself, who pay small fortunes for berets that they believe are worthy of that money (the worth being mostly in the mind, of course). But there are also people who pay sackfuls of money for autographed photographs, like this one of a beret wearing Field Marshal Montgomery.
No idea how much it sold for, in the end...
"MONTGOMERY B. L.: (1887-1976) British Field Marshal of World War II. Vintage signed 5 x 7 photograph depicting Montgomery in a full length pose standing in snow and with mountains in the background. He wears a large white overcoat and his black beret upon his head. Photograph by Villiger of Gstaad. Signed ('Montgomery of Alamein, Field Marshal') in bold, dark fountain pen ink to a clear area at the base of the image. Some surface and corner creasing, about VG"
