Choice colonel appointment by President Arthur and Abraham Lincoln’s eldest son

Exceptional partly-printed vellum DS as president, one page, 15.5 x 19.5, May 2, 1884. President Arthur appoints Peter T. Swaine as “Colonel of the Twenty-second Regiment of Infantry in the service of the United States.” Boldly signed at the conclusion by President Arthur and countersigned by Secretary of War Robert Todd Lincoln. The blue War Office seal affixed to the lower left remains crisply embossed and in immaculate condition. In fine to very fine condition, with heavy intersecting storage folds (one horizontal bisecting the signatures); this is a positively gorgeous and remarkably clean document for this period. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
