    Walt Disney Signed Promissory Note Matted and Framed with Two LOAs (1954). Matted and framed to an overall 24 ½" x 27 ¼", this lot contains four items. The eyes go straight to the upper left where a promissory note signed by Walt Disney is displayed. The $25,000 note was made out to Bank of America on October 7, 1954, and signed by Disney in the bottom right corner. The typed letter in the upper right corner is on Bank of America stationary from 1955, signed by Thomas C. Deane (vice president and manager), denoting the note had been "PAID." The letter in the bottom left corner is a typed letter from Disney's secretary, but not signed. And in the bottom right corner is a color photo of Disney. Overall, in Very Good Plus condition. The note has toning around the edges, while the Bank of America letter has fold marks, and the letter from Disney's signature has light toning. The frame has some light smudges and cracks on the corners. COA from Heritage Auctions.
