    Zachary Taylor - Military Appointment Document Signed Appointment of Osmond Peters as First Lieutenant in the Revenue Service of the United States by President Zachary Taylor and Treasury Secretary William M. Meredith. One page, 13.5" x 17.25". July 19, 1849. Dated the "nineteenth Day of July in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and forty nine and of the Independence of the United States of America the Seventy fourth, by the President." Document is signed "Z. Taylor" in the lower right corner and signed "W.M. Meredith" as Treasury Secretary at the bottom center. This document also is stamped with a well-preserved, albeit slightly faded seal which reads "Thesaur Amer Septent Sigil," The Seal of the Treasury of North America. Taylor items signed as President are scarce because of his abbreviated Presidency. Fine condition. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
