George Washington's Earliest Known Signature Sold by Paul Fraser Collectibles

Paul Fraser Collectibles are delighted to announce the sale of George Washington's earliest known signature in private hands

Feb 01,2010 - This handwritten land survey contains detailed notes of the exact layout of the land, as well as a crisply penned survey map of the tract of land.

In addition to Washington's signature on the front, the document also bears a docket on the reverse in Washington's more familiar later hand "Surveyor's fee not paid to Go; Washington".

While handwritten Washington surveys, which provide such an evocative and immediate window into the great statesman's early career, are uncommon, examples of this extremely early date (March 23, 1750-51) are of the greatest scarcity.
