Presidential Signature Collection

The Presidential Signature Collection consists of a signature for each United States President, from George Washington to George W. Bush. This fine collection is framed in large folders of heavy white deckle edged paper, one for each President, with his name, dates, number and term handsomely written in a calligrapher's hand, with red and blue trim. The signatures are on various types of documents.

Collection Highlights

Highlights include a Revolutionary War discharge signed by George Washington, a pardon for Samuel Van Horn signed by Abraham Lincoln, and an attractive vignette engraving of the White House which carries the bold signature of Chester A. Arthur.
