The letter he was assigned was a ש from the word ×שר in Chapter 3, Verse 1 of Genesis. It also notes that 1 Lira Eretz-Yisraelit was received in exchange for this honor.
In the background there is a nice lithograph print of a menorah, Torah Scroll and stars of David. Rare document, there are no other known similar documents.
