1864 appointment to the Union’s Veteran Reserve Corps

Partly-printed vellum DS as president, one page, 14.25 x 18.25, August 1, 1864. President Lincoln appoints George F. Browning as “First Lieutenant in the Veteran Reserve Corps.” Crisply signed at the conclusion by President Lincoln and countersigned by Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton. The blue seal to the upper left is present but split, with the lower half no longer affixed. Double-matted and framed with an image of Lincoln to an overall size of 27 x 25.5. Intersecting folds and overall writing a shade light, with the exception of Lincoln’s bolder signature, otherwise fine condition. The Union Army’s Veteran Reserve Corps was established to allow partially disabled or otherwise infirmed soldiers to perform light duty, freeing able-bodied soldiers to serve on the front lines. A highly desirable Civil War military appointment. Oversized. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
