Description  

Partly-printed vellum DS, signed “Andrew Jackson” as president and “M. Van Buren” as secretary of state, two pages, 11.25 x 14.5, September 11, 1829. A patent issued to Hercules Thomas, who “hath alleged that he has invented a new and useful improvement in the art of making new hubs of carriage wheels, called Thomas’ Improved Carriage Wheel Hub.” Signed at the conclusion by President Jackson, Secretary of State Van Buren, and Attorney General John M. Berrien. The second page, still attached with its original pink ribbon, bears a lengthy and detailed description of the improvement. The white paper seal affixed to the lower left remains intact. In very good condition, with intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of Jackson’s signature), scattered soiling, light mirroring to text on the upper third, and the manuscript writing filling out the document very light but mostly legible. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
