Lincoln, Abraham
2 DOCUMENTS SIGNED ("ABRAHAM LINCOLN") AS SIXTEENTH PRESIDENT, BEING MILITARY COMMISSIONS FOR JOSEPH C. AUDENRIED
Engraved broadside on vellum (19 1/4 x 15 3/8 in.; 492 x 392 mm), accomplished in a clerical hand, Washington, 9 September 1861, appointing Joseph C. Audenried "Second Lieutenant in the first Regiment of Cavalry," countersigned by the Secretary of War ("Simon Cameron"), embossed green paper seal, martial vignettes by J. V. N. and C. H. Throop at head and foot, recording docket — Engraved broadside on vellum (19 1/8 x 15 1/4 in.; 488 x 388 mm), accomplished in a clerical hand, Washington, 5 February 1862, Audenried "First Lieutenant in the Sixth Regiment of Cavalry," countersigned by the Secretary of War ("Edwin M Stanton"), embossed blue paper seal, martial vignettes by J. V. N. and C. H. Throop at head and foot, recording docket.

Together 2 documents, the first lightly offset (including the green seal) from folding, resulting in very slight obscuring of Lincoln's signature and a bit more of Cameron's, the second with a small worm-trail or natural vellum flaw not touching accomplishment or engraving. Float-matted, famed, and glazed together.
