Description


Jay Cooke & Co. Bankers check, 8.25 x 2.75, filled out and signed by Grant, payable to Maj. Webster for $251.60, May 22, 1867. A two-cent revenue stamp is affixed to the right side. Handsomely double-matted and framed with a bust-length photograph of Grant to an overall size of 15 x 16. In fine condition, with a light vertical fold, and expected bank stamps (affecting a single letter of the signature) and cancellation cuts to the body. A desirable example dating to the passing of the Reconstruction Acts, a period in which Grant’s influence protected the rights of more than 1,500 African-Americans elected to political office. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
