Lincoln, Abraham
Free Frank Signature
Washington: , c1848. Lincoln, Abraham (16th President) Address-Leaf with Autograph Free Frank Signature as "MC" (Member of Congress). [Washington: c1848]. Addressed in another hand to "(James) Cobean, Jr. / (Mans)field, Ohio". Lincoln's signature is quite typical of that period in his life and before. His signatures are quite uncommon and quite desirable from his one term in the U.S. Congress. Cobean was a lawyer in Mansfield. It's known that, in 1860, he owned $5,000 worth of real estate and $6,000 worth of personal property and served as mayor of Mansfield from 1862 to 1864.Written on an unusual brown paper, torn with its left quarter missing; otherwise excellent. Boldly written signature from his only term in the U. S. House of Representatives! A desirable "free frank" from a sought-after period in Lincoln's life. Might Require Additional Shipping [Attributes: Signed Copy]
