    Description

    SUPERB LINCOLN SIGNED NAVAL COMMISSION. January 24, 1862 commission, appointing one Ransford E. Van Geieson as an assistant surgeon in the Navy. Also signed by Gideon Welles, as Secretary of the Navy. Both document and signatures are in superb condition; this is by far the nicest Lincoln commission we have ever had! Magnificently custom-framed at great cost, with elaborate multiple matting for maximum display impact. Lincoln Naval Commissions are substantially scarcer than army ones, not surprising considering that the army had many times the number of officers. 15 x 19," 33 x 36" as framed. LOA Spence and Grad PSA/DNA. (# This item may require additional shipping charges).

    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.
