Superior partly-printed DS as president, one page, 8 x 10, June 24, 1864. President Lincoln authorizes and directs "the Secretary of State to affix the Seal of the United States to a warrant for the pardon of George Flower, Thomas Gilbert, Nicholas Martich, James Thompson, Antonio Germinovich, Thomas Kaltray, and James Perkins." Boldly signed at the conclusion by President Lincoln. Elegantly triple-matted and framed with an engraved portrait behind UV-protective acrylic to an overall size of 21.5 x 17. Affixed to a larger sheet and in fine condition, with light show-through at the corners from mounting on the reverse. President Lincoln exercised his ability to pardon, a presidential power granted by the Constitution, a total of 343 times during his administration. This particular pardon was executed at a key moment in Lincoln's life: he had been nominated for a second term at the Republican National Convention on June 14th, and formally accepted the nomination a few days after this pardon on June 27th. An appealing example boasting a bold, clear signature.
