Industry meets agriculture—patent signed by the president, secretary of state, and future chief justice
Description                           Estimate: $1,600+          

Partly-printed vellum DS as president, two pages, 11 x 14, September 28, 1831. A patent issued to "Benjamin Myers, A Citizen of the United States [who] hath alleged that he has invented a new and useful improvement in the mode of constructing Mill Stones for grinding grain, hulling clover seeds, &c." Signed at the conclusion by President Jackson and countersigned by Secretary of State Edward Livingston and Attorney General Roger B. Taney. The white paper seal affixed to the lower left remains intact. The second page, still attached by the original red ribbon, describes the form of the mill stones, consisting of a 'bed-stone' and 'runner.' In very good condition, with scattered soiling (heavier to second page). A sought-after and attractive format.
