Item Details
Description
Bank of the Metropolis check, 6.5 x 2.5, filled out and signed by Adams, "J. Q. Adams," payable to M. A. Giusta for $474.28, November 2, 1819. Encapsulated in a PSA/DNA authentication holder. In very good to fine condition, with light soiling and some small stains. This check is evidently made out to his valet, Antoine Michel Giusta, whom he hired after they met in Belgium in 1814.
