President James Madison Signed Bank of Columbia check

30 Jan

Bank of Columbia check, 6.25 x 2.5, filled out and signed by Madison as president, “James Madison,” payable to Cudden Davis for $3000, September 28, 1816. In very good condition, with overall toning, expected cancellation cuts to the body, and light dampstaining affecting a central portion of the signature. During this period the White House was being rebuilt after having been torched by the British in 1814, and Madison would not reside there for the rest of his term. A highly desirable check penned by a sitting president for an unusually hefty sum. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
