Few signatures are sought after quite like that of America’s 16th President, Abraham Lincoln. As the American Civil War raged across the country, President Abraham Lincoln would unite the Union in arguably it’s roughest time as a young nation. Ultimately his push for change would be what caused others to seek his life, leaving the United States in shock on April 15th, 1865 when Lincoln assassinated. Offered here is a highly desirable Springfield Marine and Fire Insurance Company check, 7.5 x 2.75, filled out/hand written and signed by Lincoln, “A. Lincoln”, payable to John Hutchinson for $11.00, September 28, 1857. In fair condition, with vertical creases and moderate handling wear. Lincoln penned only a handful of checks during his time, with few remaining in circulation. The signature remains bold and the colored tiers are still vibrant on the Springfield-issued bank check. The check has been matted and framed along with a portrait of Lincoln to an overall size of 19″ x 28″. Authenticated by Beckett/BAS with a full letter of authenticity.
