Lot 15: Rare partly-printed DS as president, one page, 8 x 10, January 26, 1837. President Jackson directs the "Secretary of State to affix the seal of the United States to the order, remitting the fine & forfeiture incurred by the Steamboat Merchant, Jas. McC. Baker, master." Boldly signed at the conclusion by Jackson. In fine condition, with expected document wear and the lower horizontal fold passing through the signature. This type of document is incredibly difficult to find, and with its exemplary signature and attractive, crisp condition, this is an especially desirable piece.
