Quick Overview

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. The reverse of the sign appears with the original slogan "i'm from Missouri"

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.

Very nice wooden desk frame with painted sign measuring approximately 13" wide by 1 3/4" wide. Great for an executive desk gift!

Details

In an address at the National War College on December 19, 1952 President Truman said, "You know, it's easy for the Monday morning quarterback to say what the coach should have done, after the game is over. But when the decision is up before you -- and on my desk I have a motto which says The Buck Stops Here' -- the decision has to be made."
