    Description

    James Monroe Signed Scallop Top Ship's Passport. Partly printed on vellum, 10" x 14.25"; December 18, 1819. Countersigned by John Quincy Adams, and originally issued to "Ship John Dickinson of New York - John Bausch, Master."

    Condition: Blind embossed paper seal is lacking. Deep flattened folds, as is typical with vellum. A single vertical fold affects Monroe's signature, which remains quite bold. Light soiling and toning throughout. Document remains very attractive and ideal for display.

    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.
