"The First Year of the Independence of the State of South Carolina" - Military Commission Signed by Governor Francis W. Pickens

This 8 ½ x 14 inch Commission on blue paper with a beautiful vignette of the independent state of South Carolina at the top has an imprinted state seal on the left hand side and the signature of the Governor. 


John C. Glover, Second Lieutenant of the St. Paul’s Home Guard –
A Cavalry Company of St. Paul’s Parish
.”


The commission is dated January 29th, “In the year of our Lord One thousand Eight Hundred and Sixty One and the First year of the Independence of the State of South Carolina."  This is the only fully filled out example of this type that we have ever had.  It is certainly worthy of a museum or one of the finest private collections.  This piece previously sold 12 years ago for $1,250.  We have added a CDV photograph of Governor Pickens to frame with it.
