Description

    William Pepperell Signed 1733 Check A scarce check bearing the signature of William Pepperell (1696-1759), Commander of provincial forces involved in the British capture of Louisbourg in 1745 during King George's War. The manuscript check, measuring 7.5" x 2.75", dated August 22, 1733 was issued by one George Richards for the sum of [British pound symbol] 40 in "New En[gland] Currency lately Received of Stephen Levy..." Pepperell has signed the check at the bottom right, "Accepted Wm Pepperell," adding the date, September 17, 1733. Small loss at right margin repaired with laid paper and results in the loss of a few words but does not affect signature. Light vertical creases, but still quite crisp and bright. Certainly a rarity. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
