1806 Northwest Territory land grant
Description                           Estimate: $4,000+          

Partly-printed vellum DS, signed “Th: Jefferson” as president and “James Madison” as secretary of state, one page, 14.25 x 7.75, May 20, 1806. President Jefferson grants Christian Clinker of Columbiana County, Ohio, a quarter lot of land “directed to be sold at Steubenville by the act of Congress.” Signed at the conclusion by Jefferson and countersigned by Madison. The white paper seal affixed to the lower left remains intact. Matted and framed. In very good condition, with moderate overall wrinkling, light soiling, a small hole in the vellum affecting nothing, and the beginning of Jefferson’s signature a bit light. Steubenville was the seat of Jefferson County, Ohio—named for Thomas Jefferson, then vice president, upon its establishment in 1797—and home to the first federal land office. A superb example of a document representing American expansion in its foundational years, signed by one of the most sought-after presidential combinations. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
