Benjamin Lincoln Signed Ship's Importation Papers for a Case of Claret

1p, measuring 9.25" x 5", Port of Marblehead, Massachusetts, dated April 23, 1805. A ship's importation paper, No. 5808, recording the importation of one case of Claret (containing 2.25 gallons) imported from Bordeaux by Joseph Barker in the "Liberty-Gardner", an American vessel. Signed "B Lincoln" as Collector and countersigned "J. Prentiss" as Inspector. With a blind embossed seal at the upper top left corner. Slight creasing at the top right corner, along with a small spot of staining at the lower right corner. Slightly rough edges. Boldly signed.

Benjamin Lincoln (1733-1810) was an American officer who served as a major general in the Continental Army. He was present at three British surrenders during the war: the Battles of Saratoga, the Siege of Charleston, and the Battle of Yorktown, where he formally accepted the British surrender as George Washington's second in command. After the war, Lincoln served as the first U.S. Secretary of War from 1781-1783. In his later years, he held the influential position of customs collector for the Port of Boston.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
