JOHN HANCOCK
(1737-1793) American Revolutionary politician and first signer of the Declaration of Independence, President of the Continental Congress and two-time Governor of Massachusetts. Partly-printed D.S. "John Hancock" as Governor of Massachusetts, 1p. folio, Boston, Dec. 24, 1787, the appointment of Antipas Brigham to serve as "Lieutenant of the first company in the Second Brigade of the Seventh Division of the Militia this Commonwealth comprehending the County of Worcester...". Boldly signed with a fine signature by Hancock beneath the paper seal, also signed by Secretary JOHN AVERY. Parted with minor loss at folds not affecting text or engrossment and expertly filled and repaired, a few areas toned a bit, but entirely presentable and otherwise very good. Antipas Brigham (1740-1791) served in Craft's Regiment of Artillery, raised in Brookfield, Mass. from Feb. 1, 1776, onward.
Estimate $ 3,500-4,500
