Description

    Robert Morris Signed Bond. North American Land Company. Feb. 20, 1795. Extremely Fine. Robert Morris, known as the "Financier of the Revolution," was one of the few to sign the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation and the Constitution. Morris was a great colonial era financier who also became Pennsylvania's first Senator. His North American Land Company owned thousands of square miles of land throughout many of the southern and mid-Atlantic colonies. Payment was not received quickly enough to pay off loans and make tax payments which eventually landed Morris in debtor's prison. Also signed by Secretary James Marshall, brother of future Chief Justice, John Marshall. A few minor problems are observed on this indented bond that measures approximately 12 3/4 wide x 9 inches tall. There is a small amount of ink erosion at the end of the Morris signature, a nick at the top margin, a small internal tear, and a small hole. They pose a minor distraction, if any. Due to the rarity of these bonds, this is a highly desirable piece.
