Superb pairing of Civil War-dated Lincoln endorsements

Remarkable pairing of autograph endorsements signed as president, one page, 7 x 7.5, both dated 1864. The first, in full: "Submitted to Sec. of Navy, A. Lincoln, June 13, 1864." This is followed by a series of endorsements from several congressmen: Kellian Whaley, Samuel J. Randall, William S. Holman, William H. Randall, Lewis W. Ross, Myer Strouse, John W. Chanler, Green Clay Smith, William G. Brown, Benjamin F. Loan, and Joseph W. McClurg. President Lincoln then pens a longer endorsement: "I wish this appointment made so soon as it can be consistently with formal committees. A. Lincoln, July 19, 1864." Attractively double-matted and framed with a portrait, plaque, and $5 bill to an overall size of 17.75 x 17.75. In fine condition. An exquisite war-dated piece from the esteemed American president.
