DescriptionImpressive Large U.S. Passport Document Signed by John C. Calhoun and Edward Everett This showy 1844 document for one Ashbel Welch was signed by John C. Calhoun as Secretary of State and, as an addendum, by Edward Everett as the U.S. Ambassador to Great Britain. Minor light foxing detracts minimally; nice overall display presence. Finely separated across the center along an original fold line (early repaired, or shows simply as a crease if displayed flat). Measures 11" x 16". Calhoun was one of the towering political figures of the 19th century who never achieved the Presidency (although he did serve as Vice President under President Andrew Jackson), and was best known for his vigorous defense of States' Rights. Everett became Millard Fillmore's Secretary of State, ran for Vice President in 1860 on the Union ticket with John Bell, and became a famed orator. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
