Abraham Lincoln Naval Commission for Chaplain Superb
Item Details
Description
Abraham Lincoln Naval Commission for Chaplain Superb and Extremely Rare

LINCOLN, ABRAHAM. Document Signed, "Abraham Lincoln", as President, July 2, 1864, 1 p., Washington, DC, 15.5" x 19". Countersigned by the Secretary of the Navy, "Gideon Welles".

Lincoln appoints George Williamson Smith.as Chaplain in the Navy. Features intricate engravings at top and bottom, including a victorious looking Neptune. What is exceptional about this document is that the usual folds only intersect the connecting stroke between the "a" and "h" of "Abraham"

there is usually a crease right through the signature, but that's not the case here. Additionally, the signature is quite bold. An exceptional and beautiful item.

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.
