Listing Details

Offered is a wonderful hand-signed Abraham Lincoln item that offers such great insight into his character. Offered is a 7x9 pardon dated Feburary 8th, 1864. Clean and fine (some edge wear is matted away), this pardons a William McFadden. McFadden aided an army deserter who fled to Canada during the Civil War and Lincoln was urged by Congressman Augustus Frank to pardon him after McFadden served half of his prison term. Lincoln obliged and directed the Secretary of State to pardon him. This document has a very fine full Abraham Lincoln signature in flawless period ink. This wonderful piece is presented in a very attractive and manageable 23x17 ornate dark wood frame. The display is somewhat notable as the pardon is presented next to a fine higher quality 8x10 print of Lincoln that was produced from an original negative and signed on the back by the printmaker. Overall, this is an outstanding display piece from one of the most singularly impactful figures in world history over the last 200 years. PSA DNA (full).
