Scarce 1861 postmaster appointment

Partly-printed DS as president, one page, 17.75 x 11.25, July 16, 1861. President Lincoln appoints Ezra Farrington as “Deputy Postmaster at Newburgh, in the State of New York.” Crisply signed at the conclusion by President Lincoln and countersigned by Secretary of State William H. Seward. The embossed paper seal affixed to the lower left remains fully intact but for two two tiny corner tips. Intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature), one small edge separation, a bit of soiling and a light stain to blank right margin, and show-through at the top edge from a mounting strip to reverse, otherwise fine condition. Postmaster appointments from Lincoln’s term are quite uncommon. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
