Description: Autographs
Classic 1868 Dated "U. S. Grant" Signed Printed Check Payable to "Mrs. U. S. Grant" in the amount of $200
ULYSSES S. GRANT (1822-1885). Eighteenth President of the United States, First "Lieutenant-General" since George Washington, and Major General (July 4, 1863), he led the Union Armies to victory in the last years of the American Civil War.
November 17, 1868-Dated, Partially-Printed Document Check Signed, "U. S. Grant," measures 8" x 2.75", Choice Very Fine. This colorful blue printed Check is drawn on, "Jay Cooke & Co. Bankers, Washington, D.C.," and is made out to "Mrs. U.S. Grant" in the amount of $200. A 2 U.S. Internal Revenue stamp is affixed and manuscript canceled, dated "Nov. 19th '68" at the upper right corner. Two standard cut-cancels on either side, just barely touching Grant's signature at the top of "S". Light folds, a couple trivial pinholes at left center and in overall very nice condition for display.
Born as Hiram Ulysses Grant (1822-1885), an error in his registration at West Point listed his name as Ulysses Simpson Grant, and he retained the erroneous name for the rest of his life. He served two terms as President 1869-1877.
