Partly-Printed Document Signed.

Partly-Printed Document Signed.

This Springfield attorney clerked under Lincoln and is well known for his popular 1916 account, "Personal Recollections of Abraham Lincoln." Partly-Printed DS, 1p, 8¼" X 4", Petersburg, IL, 1889 July 31. Very good. Routine and unnoticeable cancellation slashes. Handsome printed check drawn on the First National Bank, with a nice engraved vignette of that institution at left. Filled out and signed by cashier James M. Robbins to Rankin in the amount of $500.00. Rankin signs boldly in full on the verso, and above his endorsement also pens "Pay order Mrs. Mary A. Witwer." Two purple inkstamped bank seals also on verso, not affecting signature. Intriguing check for what was at that time a considerable sum. Item #32881

Price: $195.00
