Paul Fraser Collectibles sell George Washington's earliest known signature

Dated March 23, 1750-51 this handwritten land survey bears the surveyor's signature on the front and rear - the surveyor being an eighteen-year-old George Washington.

Pual Fraser Collectibles are delighted to announce the sale of the First President's earliest known signature in private hands.

The 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.
