Partly-printed vellum DS as president, one page, 12.5 x 15.75, December 15, 1835. A patent issued to Aretus A. Wilder, who “hath alleged that he has invented a new and useful improvement, the Platform, Counter, and other Scales.” Prominently signed at the conclusion by President Jackson and countersigned by Secretary of State John Forsyth. The original seal and ribbon attached to the left side remain intact, but the second page, which would have described the invention, is absent. In very good to fine condition.
