J. McLean PSA NM 7 FF

A transmittal wrapper signed by John McLean (1785-1861), American politician and jurist, as "Free / John McLean / P[ost] M[aster] G[eneral] (?)" at upper left over a red round stamp postmarked October 6, [n.y.] from Washington, D.C. Also endorsed in McLean's hand with the name and location of his addressee, as "Thomas Wilson Esquire / Cashier Bank U. States / Philadelphia." Stamped "Free" in the postage section at upper right. Encapsulated and PSA/DNA graded NM 7. Expected wear including paper folds, a wax seal-related loss verso, and a former collector's partially erased pencil inscriptions, else near fine. The wrapper measures 5.75" x 3.125." The slab measures 9.5" x 4.5."

McLean held two prominent positions in two branches of government during his career: as U.S. Postmaster General between 1823-1829; and as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court between 1829 and his death in early April 1861. McLean's correspondent Thomas Wilson was employed as Cashier of the Bank of the United States between at least the mid-1820s and early 1830s.

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.
