Description

The last of America’s Founding Fathers to be elected U.S. President, fifth Chief Executive James Monroe endorsed this 1817 document shortly into his tenure at the White House. The crisp parchment features printed and handwritten text to document a 100-acre land grant. At the conclusion, Monroe’s black-ink scripting has endured nearly 200 years to maintain (“7”) strength and clarity. The item has expected age-induced browning and an original U.S. seal. LOA from John Reznikoff, University Archives. This item has a reserve (estimated value $500-$1000)
