Authentic Hand Signed - 1862 Presidential Document - President Abraham Lincoln For Sale
Authentic hand signed official Presidential document on old vellum (measuring approx 13" x 18" ) datedApril 22nd, 1862 signed in nice brown ink by ourmartyrd 16th U.S. President... considered the greatest President of all-time, Abraham Lincoln .
Document is a nice early Military Appointment/Commission to a George Merrill as Assistant Adjutant General of Volunteers in the US Army with the rank of Captain, essentially only a year after the outbreak of the Civil War.
Document is hand signed boldly in rich "brown ink" by both President Abraham Lincoln and additionally hand signed in "brown ink" by Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton.
I had this document professionally framed with abeautiful period vintage original1880s Abraham Lincoln engraving signing documents while inthe White House complete with a simple engraved brassplaque for our 16th President and his term in office. Framing is of very high professional quality with aminimum of triple conservation matting,100% full UV glass protection and an "expensive" custom made antique finish wooden frame.
I have been told by many who view this framed item inperson that it simply looks amazing. The custom framing cost me over $850 alone. I think you will be pleased with this purchase. The total framed item measures an impressive 33" x 28" in size as you can see from my pictures.
Document is quite ornate with military vignettes at top / bottom and War Dept blue seal at top left corner withusual signs of period aging as would be expected for an original Civil War Military document of this timeframe. The signatures unlike many from this period that have faded terribly from previous improper framing are really nice and actually bold. Take a look for yourself. The rich brown ink is still very strong and distinct as it was previously kept and stored out of sunlight prior to me finally spending the time and resources to have it properly custom framed and by one of the finest framing folks in the entire Washington, DC area (will provide complete details to framing costs and background upon request as well to winning buyer) .
Compare this signature on this Presidential document to others signed by President Lincoln ... you get no bargain if the signature is very light as it willonly get far worse from theprevious improper exposure.. letyour eyes speak for you when you see other Lincoln documentsoffered and describe asstrong signatures? I cannot stress it enough, one of the mostimportant value to a signed document is the "strength of the signature" .
