Lot 1: Bold ink signature as president, "G:o Washington," on an off-white 4.25 x 3.25 slip clipped from a larger document. Handsomely mounted, double-matted, and ornately framed with a color portrait, engraved plaque, and nameplate affixed to the glass to an overall size of 24.5 x 21. In very good condition, with subtle intersecting folds, overall toning, and two cancellation slits cut through the "s" in his last name. A highly appealing example of Washington's sought-after presidential autograph.
