Exceptional signature of Grant

Ulysses Simpson Grant,  born Hiram Ulysses Grant, 1822–1885.  Lieutenant General, United States Army, American Civil War; 18th President of the United States, 1869–1877.  Signature, U. S. Grant, on a a 2¼” x 3⅝” card.

This is a stunning signature of Grant in dark brown ink.  It comes from an outstanding collection of signatures on cards assembled in the Gilded Age that also included Presidents Rutherford B. Hayes and James A. Garfield and a host of notables, some of whom we still have, such as William Jennings Bryan, William Cullen Bryant, Samuel L. Clemens / Mark Twain, Peter Cooper, Charles Darwin, Frederick Douglass, Cornelius Vanderbilt, John Greenleaf Whittier, and Brigham Young.  Feel free to contact us about those as well.

This card retains its original sheen.  It has a tiny foxing spot at the top edge and a bit of soiling in the middle that is virtually unnoticeable.  Overall, the piece is in very fine.
