The iconic "The Buck Stops Here" desk plaque was proudly displayed on President Harry Truman's desk in his White House office beginning in 1945. The original sign was crafted at the Federal Reformatory in El Reno, Oklahoma. Great gift item that is perfect for the collector or the executive that wants to make a point. The phrase "the buck stops here" has its history in the expression "pass the buck" which denotes passing the responsibility on to someone else. During President Truman's time as President of the United States he often referred to the design in public speeches in order to make it clear that he alone is prepared to make the tough decisions. That is his job as President. The reverse includes the original wording "I'm from Missouri". Very nice wooden desk frame with painted sign measuring approximately 13" wide by 1 3/4" wide. In its own box ready for gift giving! Condition: Brand new Size: 13" x 1 3/4" Buy with confidence, check our excellent ebay feedback rating. Comes with our 100% guarantee of authenticity.
