    Description

    Robert Morris Signed Bond. North American Land Company. 1795. Choice About New. Robert Morris was known as the "Financier of the Revolution." He is one of the few to sign the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation and The Constitution. He was a great colonial era financier who also became Pennsylvania's first Senator. The 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. There is some ink erosion in a couple of the more boldly penned letters of this otherwise spectacular bond. In Choice condition such as this these are always pressing the four figure mark due to demand being far greater than supply.
