Presidential patent for an improved grist mill
Description                           Estimate: $1,500+          

Partly-printed vellum DS as president, three pages two sheets, 11.5 x 15, April 3, 1835. A patent issued to "Elisha Holton, a citizen of the State of Pennsylvania in the United States, [who] hath alleged that he has invented a new and useful improvement in the construction of a grist mill." Nicely signed at the conclusion by President Jackson and countersigned by Secretary of State John Forsythe and Attorney General Benjamin F. Butler. The document retains its embossed white paper seal and ribbons. The second page, still attached with its original pink ribbon, contains a detailed description of the patent signed by Holton; also inserted is a hand-drawn and colored diagram of his grist mill. In very good condition, with heavy intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature), moderate scattered soiling, and most writing a bit faded (except for Jackson's bold signature). An uncommon and highly desirable format.
