Atypically large, seldom-seen full signature of the future first president
Description                           Estimate: $7,500+          

Third-person ADS in Washington’s hand, signed within the text, “George Washington,” one page, 6.5 x 3.25, June 2, 1773. Handwritten receipt, written on the back of an advertisement for "Cards made by James McEvoy Card-maker in Ordinary to Her Majesty Piccadilly St. James's," in full: “Received from George Washington the Sum of Twenty three pounds Currt for a dark bay horse sold him at Publick Vendue." Signed at the conclusion by John Lort. Document has been professionally inlaid into a slightly larger off-white sheet. Double-cloth-matted with a copy of the front of the advertisement, an engraved 15 shilling 1773 Pennsylvania note, three color images of Washington, and a small plaque to an overall size of 41.75 x 23.5. In fine condition, with light show-through from writing on the reverse. One of the finest riders of his time, Washington actively participated in all facets of horsemanship, from breeding and racing to hunting and trading. This receipt holds distinction not only in its relation to the founding father’s favorite pastime, but also in its large, attractive signature. A highly desirable example of Washington's complete autograph. Oversized. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
