    Description

    Abraham Lincoln Signed Naval Appointment one page, partially printed, vellum, 15.5" x 19.25", Washington, D.C., February 19, 1862. Lincoln's signature has been darkened, thus significantly decreasing the value. Countersigned by Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles, the document appoints Philip S. Wales a Navy Surgeon. With embossed Navy seal and embellished with maritime engravings. Folds as expected.
