DescriptionJohn Morton Signed Pennsylvania April 3, 1772 18d PMG Very Fine 25.
A pleasing, mid-grade example of this Pennsylvania colonial that bears the signature of John Morton. John Morton was a farmer, surveyor, and jurist from the Province of Pennsylvania. As a delegate to the Continental Congress during the American Revolution, he provided the swing vote that allowed Pennsylvania to vote in favor of the United States Declaration of Independence. Morton signed the Declaration and chaired the committee that wrote the Articles of Confederation. A couple of minor stains have been noted by PMG.
