(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $10,164.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Partly-printed war-dated DS as president, one page, 16 x 10, August 23, 1861. President Lincoln appoints A. Dupont Davis a “Captain in the National Rifles of the Militia of the District of Columbia: He is therefore carefully and diligently to discharge the duty of Captain in leading, ordering, and exercising the Militia of said District.” Signed at the conclusion by Lincoln and countersigned by Secretary of War Simon Cameron. In very good to fine condition, with intersecting folds, one through a single letter of signature, a couple small holes and separations along folds, scattered toning and creasing, and small tape remnant to top edge on reverse. The blue seal is uniformly worn, but intact. The militia was mobilized into federal service twice during the Civil War to resist Confederate attacks on Washington, DC. Lincoln military appointments are quite desirable, and rarely seen militia examples even more so. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
