Lot 6: James Garfield Document Signed as President
26th April 2018
James Garfield document signed as President, appointing James Matson as Postmaster in Sparta, Illinois. Elegantly signed at lower right, ''James A. Garfield'' on 1 June 1881. Garfield is one of the rarest Presidential signatures as he was only in office six months before an assassin's bullet took his life. Document measures 17'' x 14'' with striking bronze seal with red ribbon attached. Separation starting along folds and chipping to left edge. Some shadowing of seal on signature. Overall in very good condition.
