1897 President William Mckinley Appointment Document Signed Indian Wars Officer For Sale

1897 President William Mckinley Appointment Document Signed Indian Wars Officer

Very Rare and beautiful, original 1897 Pre-Spanish American War / United States Army Commission / Warrant Document Signed by William McKinley as President.


This beautiful 15 1/2" by 19 1/4", engraved Military Commission is printed on vellum and signed boldly in brown ink by President William McKinley and also signed by Russell A. Alger (former Union General during the Civil War) as Secretary of War. The Commission is dated December 28th, 1897 and appoints Harry Lee Bailey as a "Captain of Infantry" in the United States Army.


Harry Lee Bailey was born in Dalton, Ohio, in 1854. He graduated from West Point in 1876 and served in the Nez Perce War in 1877, the Bannock War in 1878, and the Spanish-American War. The Online Archive of California contains autobiographical material written by Bailey detailing his military service, primarily in the Nez Perce War, but also in the Bannock War and Spanish-American War battles in the Philippines. He also summarizes his assignments from 1880 to 1898 in Washington Territory, Virginia, Kansas, Wyoming, Utah, Nebraska, Ohio, Arizona, and New York.


This rare and very attractive, William McKinley signed Military Commission retains its original attached, blue seal at the lower left hand corner and features an outstanding engraved image of an array of flags and military arms and accoutrements at the bottom center.


The Commission / Warrant is in excellent condition. The engravings at the top and bottom are dark and rich. The signatures are dark and bold. McKinley's signature is strong and beautiful. The Vellum sheet is particularly clean for a Document of this type. There is no damage or repairs to the vellum sheet but a small portion of the applied, embossed paper seal is lacking (see the scans below). Overall this wonderful William McKinley Signed Military Commission is well preserved, very attractive and, with a quality matting and framing, will display beautifully.


A rare and very attractive, 1887 United States Army Commission / Warrant Document Signed by William McKinley as President and a fantastic addition to any collection!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
