Just a month before his death, Abraham Lincoln signs an official Presidential appointment "Abraham Lincoln" with an engraving of his name arching across the top. The document appoints Jeremiah Lothrop to the position of "Appraiser of Merchandise for the Port of New York in the State of New York". Acting Secretary of the Treasury George Harrington countersigns. The lower left bears a faintly embossed Treasury Department seal. Partly printed document is dated 7 March 1865 and measures 17.75" x 14". 1" separation at top fold, else near fine condition. A fantastic, bold Abraham Lincoln signature.
