Declaration Signer George Clymer Superb Signed Check

Fantastic George Clymer Signature on a bank check issued by "Philadelphia Bank" for "Fifteen dollars". 5.75" x 2". Dated "September 20, 1804", and signed by George Clymer as "Geo Clymer". Small cancellation hole not affecting the signature. Strong vibrant ink.

Clymer was a patriot partisan and leader in the disturbances in Philadelphia resulting from the Tea Act and the Stamp Act, and a Member of the Philadelphia Council of Safety in 1773. He was an ardent and vocal advocate of independence from Britain and a tireless proponent of a strong, united central government – both views putting him in frequent conflict with the more cautious Quaker-led powers of the Pennsylvania colony. He was elected to the Continental Congress in 1776, and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. When Congress left Philadelphia for Baltimore during the winter of 1776 in panic at the advance of the British, Clymer stayed as one of three in an Executive Committee to ensure that the army was supplied and the government continued to function.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
