Abraham Lincoln rare check signed as president-elect

Springfield Marine & Fire Insurance Company check, 7.75 x 2.75, filled out and signed by Lincoln as president-elect, “A. Lincoln,” payable to “Self” for $50, November 21, 1860. In fine condition, with a few light creases and expected cancellation cuts (two of which trivially affect the signature, one passing through the very bottom of the “A” and one between the “i” and “n”; the thin slits are such that they do not affect the general appearance of the signature).

Lincoln had been elected to his first term as president just two weeks earlier, on November 6, 1860, and he spent most of this period meeting well-wishers and office seekers, lending support to Republican elections at the state level, and assembling his famous cabinet known as the ‘Team of Rivals.’ On this particular date of November 21, he and Mary Todd boarded a northbound train for Chicago. During the trip he made briefs stops to speak to enthusiastic crowds at Lincoln, Bloomington, and Lexington, but generally avoided politics and simply offered his thanks for support and expressed his hope for the future of the nation. Upon arriving in Chicago, Lincoln traveled to the Tremont House where he was introduced to his vice president, Hannibal Hamlin, a meeting described by the Chicago Journal as ‘cordial in the highest degree.’ Although the Republican National Convention had settled upon the ticket of Lincoln and Hamlin in May, it was not until after the election that they actually met—an oddity unthinkable in today’s day and age. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.

Beatles 1969 Signed Stock Transfer Forms

Four stock transfer documents, each signed by a different band member, each one page, 8 x 13, all four stamp-dated July 30, 1969, each assigning or transferring shares of stock. McCartney’s, signed ”Paul McCartney,” assigns the shares to Edelweiss Investments Limited; Lennon’s, signed “John Lennon,” assigns the shares to Daffodil Investments Limited; Harrison’s, signed “George Harrison,” assigns the shares to Cornflower Investments Limited; and Starr’s, signed “R. Starkey,” assigns the shares to Daffodil Investments Limited. The two-sided typed documents also include each band member’s home address, as well as a stamp from Triumph Investment Trust, Ltd. and embossed tax seals dated August 13th, 1969. In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, in part “To find The Beatles signatures on anything from the year 1969 nearly impossible – they’re that rare. These documents relate directly to the complicated business affairs that were happening just as the band was about to break up, making them indeed a part of Beatles history”.

These shares were the Beatles’ holdings as a result of the sale of NEMS Publishing to Triumph earlier in 1969. Each form indicates a transfer amount of 735 shares to four of the seven investment companies formed on behalf of the band. These agreements represent a decision by the Beatles to transfer an equal number of shares of Triumph stock to the brokerage house Whyte, Brecher, & Gasc Ltd. Each of these transactions was made through the band members’ individual investment companies. When these agreements were signed, the Beatles were in EMI Studios putting the finishing touches on their final album, Abbey Road. On the very same day these forms were signed John recorded lead guitar overdubs on ‘Come Together’ and the band completed their first full mix-down on the famous Abbey Road medley. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.

German pressing of Marley’s Uprising album signed

German pressing of Marley’s Uprising album signed and inscribed on the front cover in blue ballpoint, “To Stephnie, all the Best Wishes Happy Christmas, Love, Bob Marley.” Marley has traced over his signature a couple of times to make it bolder. In fine condition, with aforementioned tracing over of signature and a mild album impression to front cover. The record is included. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the original recipient which reads, in part: “We have a house in Rottach-Egern on Lake Tegern (Bavaria)…that we used to rent out as a vacation house. At one point an English doctor came to us and rented the house for a cancer patient and several other people…my parents learned that it was dealing with Bob Marley, who was undergoing cancer treatment with the former ‘miracle doctor’ Dr. Issels. The doctor had rented the house for several weeks…Bob Marley probably left the house in the dark early in the morning to go to Dr. Issel’s clinic and returned in the dark late in the evening…My mother explains that the house had been totally overheated to the point that the balconies were warped! Bob Marley…moved to somewhere else. At that time, we had only seen his mother and his entourage, since other opportunities still had to be regulated. My mother asked for an autograph for her children and then we got these albums (Kaya for my sister and Uprising for me, Stephanie).” Issels, a world famous cancer expert, treated Marley for several months in late 1980 until a few days prior to Marley’s untimely death at age 36. Provenance: Christies, May 25, 2006. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
