Original Presidential Signed Documents Up for Auction





On June 28, 2007, Profiles in History lives up to its name and reputation as the nation's leading dealer of guaranteed-authentic original historical documents by presenting for auction two of the most rare and historic documents that have ever been made available for purchase. The first document is a proclamation signed on July 4, 1876 by President Ulysses S. Grant, his entire cabinet, all members of both Houses of Congress along with all members of the United States Supreme Court, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The second document, a proclamation signed on July 21, 1892 by President Benjamin Harrison along with his entire cabinet, all members of both Houses of Congress and the entire United States Supreme Court, celebrates the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' discovery of America. These are the only documents known to exist in private hands that carry the signature of the leaders of all three branches of the Federal Government and bear the Great Seal of the United States as well as the Seals of the Supreme Court, Senate and House of Representatives. The expected selling price for each is expected to top $60,000-$80,000. The auction begins at 11:00am PT.
