Beautiful "James Madison" Signed Check As US President
JAMES MADISON (1751-1836). 4th President of the United States, known as the "Father of the Constitution of the United States."
June 4, 1816-Dated, Partly-Printed Document Check Signed, "James Madison" as President, Washington, measuring 2.5" x 6.5", Choice Extremely Fine. This early Check is drawn on the Office of Pay and Deposit of the Bank of Columbia, dated and completely filled out in Madison's own hand to "Th(omas) Williams" for "Ten" dollars and "70" cents. This Check has a decorative scrolled border design at left, printed in black upon watermarked "MEE" white wove period paper. Two official cut cross cancels affect a couple of printed letters and do not touch anything written by Madison. Boldly Signed, "James Madison" measuring 2" long in vivid dark brown ink. An excellent display item and a superior quality example of this rare Presidential autographed check. Ex: EAHA Auction, February 9, 2002, Lot 169, where it sold for $2,300.
