Franklin was America’s scientist, journalist, inventor, politician, philanthropist and businessman. He is best known as one of our Founding Fathers and the only one who signed all three documents: The Declaration of Independence, the American Constitution, and the Treaty of Paris.
As a scientist, he proved that lightning was electricity and invented a rod to prevent it from destroying buildings. He invented bifocal glasses, charted the Gulf Stream, invented a cleaner burning stove, and proposed theories on the contagiousness of the common cold.
Franklin’s genius was his network of business and social connections. He leveraged this network to the benefit of his variety of interests from science and politics to business and journalism. Franklin began as an artisan with only two years of formal education. He was the architect of his own fortune. He was a self-made man who becomes one of the most symbolic figures in American history.
Each Limited Edition is packaged in a special Commemorative navy blue box featuring Benjamin Franklin’s signature.
