Estimate: $13,000.00 +
Sold Price: $15,653.05 (includes buyer's premium)


Autograph manuscript DS, signed “Paul Jones,” one page, 6.75 x 2.5, July 17, 1783. Receipt of payment, in full: “Received Philadelphia July 17th. 1783 from John Ross Esqr. the Sum of one hundred Dollars on account—Paul Jones, £37.10.0.” Archivally matted and framed with an engraving of Jones bearing a preprinted signature to an overall size of 18 x 12.25. In very good condition, with scattered overall toning not adversely affecting the boldness of the very rare signature. Jones remains exceedingly rare across all formats, with this handwritten receipt serving as only the second Jones-signed item we have ever offered, and the first instance of a signed document. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
