    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Signed Military Appointment.
    14.75" x 19.5" vellum document appointing Jacob Dock to Assistant Quartermaster with the rank of Captain. Appointed June 22, 1861. The appointment retains an intact blue seal and is countersigned by Secretary of War Edwin Stanton. The top features a large American eagle with "President of the United States of America" above, and a military vignette at the bottom. Both signatures are excellent. The piece has typical mailing folds vertical and horizontal, and some small scattered holes along the vertical fold near the top, and some light age at the bottom, overall a fine example. Lincoln signed commissions are one of the most coveted of all forms of Lincoln autograph material, this piece being no exception!

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
