The last U.S. President to have served in the Civil War, William McKinley (d.1901) is the endorser of this vintage check. Cut from the original document, the piece measures approximately 4 x 3-7/8” and is dated (in McKinley’s hand) “Jan 7th 1885.” On the appropriate line, McKinley has signed “W McKinley Jr” in black ink steel tip fountain pen. Among the tougher Chief Executive scriptings, this one projects (“9”) strength and clarity with a vertical compacting fold resulting in very minor separation on the “M.” Full photo LOA from JSA.
