Description

Third U.S. President Thomas Jefferson’s impact on society is measured in millions if not billions of lives. As principal author of the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson drew on his classic education to play a pivotal role in the creation of the USA, the greatest democracy in history. Impact your political autograph collection with this Thomas Jefferson signed free frank. Addressed to “R.J. Meigs esquire” this key presidential signature has been certified Authentic by PSA/DNA. Moderate age appropriate wear does not diminish Jefferson’s mighty endorsement, which reports desirable (“8-9”) potency from its placement at top left. Brevet Colonel Return J. Meigs, Jr. fought in the Northwest Territory Indian Wars and held political office as an Ohio senator and governor prior to his appointment by President James Madison to the position of U.S. Postmaster General. The offered document is further addressed as “Post master Genl, Washington” indicating it originated during the period 1814-1823 which was the span of Meigs' service as Postmaster. Light soiling and a 2” vertical tear which contacts the letter “s” at the end of the name “Meigs” do not affect Jefferson’s signature, which fortunately resides in the cleanest quadrant of this important historical relic.
