Description: Autographs
Charles Carroll of Carrollton - Signer of the Declaration of Independence From Maryland Check Filled Out & Signed By
CHARLES CARROLL (1737-1832). Signer of the Declaration of Independence, Member of the Maryland Committees of Correspondence and Safety, elected to the Continental Congress.
April 12, 1821-Dated, Rarely encountered Partially-Printed Check, filled out in ink and Signed, "C.H. Carroll of Carrollton," measuring 6.25" x 2.75", Extremely Fine. Ornately Matted and Framed under plexiglass along with portrait and engraved metal descriptive plaque to an overall size of 23" x 17.5". Charles Carroll, who added the "of Carrollton" to his name to distinguish himself from his similarly named relatives, was a wealthy Maryland planter and an early advocate of independence from Great Britain. He served as a Delegate to the Continental Congress and Confederation Congress and later as first United States Senator for Maryland. He was the only Catholic and the longest-lived (and last surviving) signer of the Declaration of Independence, dying 56 years after the document was first signed. Check appears in very nice condition, trimmed at left margin and cut-cancelled in two places. Not examined outside of frame. Museum-quality (expensive) professionally framed and ready for display in any collection.
